How do film organizations create the most inclusive approach to building audiences? In this session, representatives of theaters, festivals, and distributors lead an open source, peer-to-peer exchange of experiences, hard questions, and case studies around inclusive film programming. All session attendees are invited to participate in addressing the power structures inherent to traditional film exhibition and distribution that inhibit social equity. We will share the questions we're wrestling with, successes, setbacks, and ideas for collective action. We will challenge ourselves to create more accessible and equitable programming, to reach wider audiences, and explore how adopting a racial equity lens in programming can contribute to undoing racism in the film industry.
