We’re thrilled to announce some amazing news.
This spring, following the work we did with American Friends Service Committee to create a website, and record and edit interviews with each of the women in Sanctuary in Colorado, we received an invitation to meet with a group of filmmakers all of whom were working on films around the sanctuary movement.
Adrian was able to attend the “Sanctuary Media Makers Collaborative.” He had an amazing few days in June meeting with filmmakers in Detroit, Michigan at the Allied Media Conference, sharing experiences, ideas and resources. We are grateful to the AMC for finding space for us to meet, to the Ford Foundation for covering travel expenses, and to Auburn Seminary for connecting all of us.
Deciding to continue collaborating together, the group of filmmakers submitted two proposals to the South By Southwest festival (SXSW) to present panel discussions. And we can now report that one of those panels was selected to be part of SXSW 2019!
Adrian will be participating along with Pilar Timpane, Theo Rigby, and Allison Week in a panel discussion titled “Documenting Faith Based Social Movements.” The panel will be part of the Social & Global Impact track.
The SXSW festival takes place March 8-13, 2019. If anyone is planning on going to SXSW or will be in Austin, Texas at that time, both of us will be attending and we would love to meet with you then. We are humbled by this opportunity to share and learn, and will be posting more about the panel and event in the coming months.
