Workshop

Disability Employment Awareness in Documentary Filmmaking

Join us for an exciting online event, Disability Employment Awareness in Documentary Film, on Sat Oct 14 2023, starting at 11:00 AM Pacific Daylight Time.

Learn from renowned filmmakers, disability advocates, and industry experts as they share their experiences, insights, and techniques for effectively capturing the stories of individuals with disabilities in the workplace.

Discover the challenges and triumphs faced by those with disabilities in the documentary film industry, and gain a deeper understanding of the importance of inclusive employment practices. With a focus on authentic storytelling, we will explore how documentary filmmaking can shed light on the unique talents and capabilities of individuals with disabilities, challenging stereotypes and promoting equal opportunities.

Whether you’re a filmmaker, disability advocate, or simply interested in the power of storytelling, this event offers a valuable opportunity to connect, learn, and be inspired.
