ABOUT GOTHAM WEEK
Back IRL for the first time in three years, Gotham Week 2022 will take place at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, September 17-23, and also includes virtual programming and events. Each year, Gotham Week connects groundbreaking talent in film, TV, and audio to the ecosystem of industry decision-makers, experts, and organizations that support their success. Through Project Market discoveries and acquisitions, innovative Conference programming, and the inaugural partner Expo, Gotham Week gives independent creators critical industry access, resources, and opportunities to grow their network. It provides a unique platform from which groundbreaking careers and projects have launched, celebrating the creativity, boldness, and determination The Gotham is all about.
Building upon the media justice organizing of other undocumented leaders before us, we envision a filmmaking industry that values the stories, craft, voices, and artistic autonomy of undocumented filmmakers. We understand filmmaking as a pathway for healing and fostering community, by telling authentic stories that honor the dignity and complexity of all immigrants. The Undocumented Filmmakers Collective champions the artistry and cultivates a community for undocumented immigrants in the film industry. By nurturing a space that uplifts stories by undocumented filmmakers, we advocate for a film industry that is more equitable for all artists, regardless of their immigration status.
