Facing Race 2022: Calls to Create A Documentary About Phoenix, Arizona
Facing Race is coming to Phoenix, Arizona in 2022! For over 15 years, Facing Race has brought incredible learning experiences to cities throughout the US.
Race Forward is searching for a talented filmmaker to create a short, docu-style film to be shared on our social media platforms and shown on the big screen at Facing Race! This short film should be a love letter to the city of Phoenix. It should celebrate and uplift organizers working on the ground, artists and creatives of color, BIPOC owned businesses struggling in this new economy, and more. It can also tell more harrowing stories and focus entirely on the issues and the change that needs to happen.
Our focus this year is the city of Phoenix: its picturesque landscapes, diverse black and brown communities, underground art and activities, social and political activism, and extensive history. We want to highlight Black, Indigenous, and people of color. We want to celebrate LGBTQIA people. We want to uplift the work of immigration activists.
