Organizing and Filmmaking: Then and Now

Third World Newsreel is presenting a series of free public film screenings in New York city, followed by conversations with filmmakers and activists. These film exhibitions and talks will explore the rich history of media arts made by and in collaboration with historically marginalized communities, while highlighting the constancy of issues and changes in community response over different generations.

Organizing and Filmmaking: Then and Now is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in Partnership with the City Council.

The 2020 program includes four classic films produced by Third World Newsreel (formerly the Newsreel):

  • El Pueblo Se Levanta (The People Are Rising)
  • Break and Enter
  • From Spikes to Spindles
  • Teach Our Children

Organizing and Filmmaking: Then and Now, originally scheduled as in-person events starting in March, will now start on May 2nd with a series of virtual programs with film screenings and talks. Please follow us on social media for updates.
