Inspired by our “Docs That Make a Difference” film series, we are
proud to present a filmmaker discussion that focuses on turning the art

filmmaking. Filmmakers are making statements, effec"ng lives and
changing the world through thought‐provoking, inspiring docs that
challenge audience members to make a difference through involve‐
ment, ac"vism and mo"va"on. Make a movie, make a difference in this
inspiring conversa"on! The panel will feature fes"val filmmakers.
