Film Roundtable was to created as space for artists in the industry to talk openly and freely about what is present for them at this unprecedented moment in time. Most of us have found ourselves, until just recently, in a sort of worldwide, collective pause. We have had an abundance of time to be quiet, to go inside ourselves, to listen, but most importantly to imagine the change we want to see in our own lives and careers as well as for the collective as a whole. A quality of life greater not just for ourselves but for all. As image makers, many of us with voices that are heard around the world, to really begin to envision how we use our platform, our art, to create change for a greater good; a kinder and more just world.
