HIFF TALKS: The Official Podcast of the Hawai‘i International Film Festival is recorded by and for the HIFF community, we go a little beyond the normal Q&A with filmmakers on their works and interests. Starting with intention, our talks inevitably go into unexpected, spontaneous directions. Such is the life of building community with creatives with a touch of aloha.
Receiving a $1.35M grant and supported by the Ford Foundation, MacArthur Foundation, and the Perspective Fund, Color Congress is poised to make a major impact on the documentary filmmaking community, especially for historically underrepresented filmmakers from the BIPOC community. We chat openly with co-founders Sonya Childress and Sahar Driver about their journey to this moment and their strategies for encouraging and supporting real change for organizations aligned with their mission.
