Over the past 20 years, the Creatively Speaking Film Series has become known as the leading film series presenting independently produced media, conveying realistic, complete depictions of people of color. Shorts, documentaries and narrative films tell universal stories — changing the cultural narrative of what is typically presented in the mainstream media. Creatively Speaking brings together an array of audiences – artists and activists, students, academics and film aficionados. Creatively Speaking programs are appropriate in educational settings, museums and media arts organizations, as well as in theatrical cinemas. The Creatively Speaking team consists of filmmakers, curators, scholars, film students, community activists and other film professionals, well-versed in facilitating dialogueacross a range of audiences about the art and craft of filmmaking as well as the social issues presented in the films. Engaging in progressive, thought-provoking dialogue following each screening is a trademark of the Creatively Speaking experience.
