Making a Change: Creating Impact through Storytelling

How do the stories we tell have the power to inspire social and cultural change? From exploring social justice or environmental movements to using personal storytelling to give voice to underrepresented perspectives, both fiction and nonfiction films can impact how audiences see and interpret the world and inspire action. Join us for a conversation about channeling your passion for self-expression and activism into films that can transform the world.


Moderated by Deidre Searcy, FACETS Festival Programmer
