WIFT-FL is proud to support this event and list them as our feature member of the month
In 2016, Miami Dade College’s Miami Film Festival (MFF) announced a unique partnership with Google to present a seminar series that would address gender and racial gaps in the film industry, particularly in creative, producing, and technical roles. Moderated by MFF and Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) programmer Kiva Reardon, Google Talks: Gender & Racial Gaps in Film + Tech offers a forum to discuss solutions and inspire new filmmakers wanting to scale the heights of their chosen profession.
The seminar series has featured informative talks from invigorating voices working behind and in-front of the camera. Guests have included: veteran cinematographer Kirsten Johnson, whose feature memoir Cameraperson had its world premiere at the 2016 Sundance Film Festival, Tilane Jones, executive director of ARRAY – an independent film distribution collaborative dedicated to amplifying the voices of women filmmakers and filmmakers of color around the globe, Indignation and Maps to the Stars actress Sarah Gadon, and the creators of Shugs & Fats, an award-winning comedy web series, Radhika Vaz and Nadia P. Manzoor. The Festival is proud to continue to stand in the foreground of presenting films by women filmmakers and encourages submissions for the fall showcase GEMS, scheduled October 12-15, and the 35th edition of the Festival, held March 9-18, 2018.
