DOC CONFERENCE Industry Talks: Funding Under-represented Doc-Makers

In recent years, there has been much public discourse about ensuring that more filmmakers of colour get behind the camera. In this conversation, we’ll hone in on the structural and cultural barriers that prevent doc-makers from under-represented communities from accessing the funding they need to bring their perspectives to the screen. Heidi Tao Yang (Hot Docs), Claire Aguilar (International Documentary Association), and Jesse Wente (Indigenous Screen Office) will discuss their own efforts to reduce these funding hurdles and will address the growing funding opportunities for these communities in the documentary space.
