Empowering Every Voice in Film and in the World

Friday, January 24, 3:00 p.m.–5:30 p.m.
Kimball Art Center, 1401 Kearns Blvd.

Now is the time to empower and inspire everyone to share their story. It’s only when we experience new perspectives through the lens of someone else’s experience that true change happens, but not everyone’s story is being told.

When the lens is skewed, it offers a tilted view of society, and unrepresented groups cannot envision themselves as the creative voices driving the most-watched stories. That is a problem for the industry and for the world at large.

Join this lively discussion, moderated by Meagan Keane (senior product marketing manager for Adobe Pro Video), with editor Eileen Meyer (Crip Camp), Yance Ford (talent, Disclosure: Trans Lives on Screen; Oscar-nominated director, Strong Island), editor Stacy Goldate (Disclosure: Trans Lives on Screen), and director Crystal Kayiza (See You Next Time) on how to bring your own unique voice to life.

Presented by Adobe

This panel will have an American Sign Language (ASL) interpreter on-site.

As you use our Online Archives, please understand that the information presented from Festivals, Labs, and other activities is taken directly from official publications from each year. While this information is limited and doesn't necessarily represent the full list of participants (e.g. actors and crew), it is the list given to us by the main film/play/project contact at the time, based on the space restrictions of our publications. Each entry in the Online Archives is meant as a historical record of a particular film, play, or project at the time of its involvement with Sundance Institute. For this reason, we can only amend an entry if a name is misspelled, or if the entry does not correctly reflect the original publication.
