Presented With

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.
