Our Stories Matter
MiFILM is a community that values the quality of life of filmmakers. We are dedicated to the increased equity, inclusion and representation of marginalized groups in entertainment. We believe that media is a dominant language that criticizes society, and as storytellers we have the privilege to help shape that narrative in our art. Through advocacy and outreach activities, our members work tirelessly to make an impact with their stories.
Minorities in Film at a Glance
Minorities in Film collective is organized by Brittany Franklin and Ian Grant. We know that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. Back in 2017, we realized two things; that production spaces were not all accessible for people with varying disabilities, and major above the line workforces were homogenous in nature. We thought, by working together on passion projects we could overcome our challenges much more efficiently. From our first production workshop in Brooklyn to our new, and growing, online community we are dedicated to the advancement of our careers.
We are our own gatekeepers
