About the Event
Join Film Fatales on Friday September 11th 2pm PT for a discussion about Filmmaking While Parenting with feature film directors Débora Souza Silva (Black Mothers), Kestrin Pantera (Let's Ruin It With Babies), and Renée Wilson (Crepe Covered Sidewalks). Moderated by Film Fatales member Tamara Perkins (Life After Life).
This round table discussion will feature filmmakers carving out new ways of building creative life while raising families. Each will share experiences and insight on reimagining creative space and opportunity for parent filmmakers to thrive. Questions that will be explored include: How can the film industry better support working parents? How do we as filmmakers work together to co-create spaces that include families, respect the unique needs of parents on and off sets, and see working parents as assets to projects and not liabilities? What role can policy change play in equalizing the industry for women and parents? How does self-care contribute to boosting morale, mindfulness and sparking and sustaining creativity in working parents. How can we support each other more in this industry and what can filmmakers without kids do to make equitable spaces for their parenting colleagues a reality?
