#FilmCurious recap: Film as a mirror and a window

August 24, 2017

 

It's not enough to talk about diversity. Let’s talk about inclusion, the lenses we make and watch films through, and what our collective responsibility is to make and support great work. And that’s exactly what we did with #FilmCurious guests Shaun Lau (host of film and social issues podcast No, Totally), Gerry Maravilla (writer, director, head of crowdfunding at Seed&Spark), Lauren Warren (screenwriter, filmmaker, podcaster) and Cameo Wood (director, screenwriter, producer).

 

As the conversation unfolded, a few themes emerged that were too good to leave in the Twitterverse: 1) Seeing yourself on screen requires nuanced, intersectional characters, 2) Creating stories about or with underrepresented groups should not be done in a vacuum and 3) Progress is happening, and there’s still a lot of work to be done.
