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
Reinforcing our Commitment
With our collective's mission always in mind, we strive to find new strategies to allow filmmakers to create viable products that will give them the competitive edge they need to advance their careers. Advocacy is something that we take very seriously, and our team is working each and every day to make a positive impact. Contact us to learn more about our commitment to this cause.
One Step at a Time
At Minorities in Film, we are dedicated to stepping up our efforts in addressing the racial and ethnic disparity in film. Support is by no means an easy feat, but through collaboration and community empowerment we believe we can facilitate progress in this area. We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more and lend your support.
Helping the community
With this initiative, our goal is to promote great opportunities for those in need. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. Learn more about our workshops by getting in touch with our team today.
