1. What do Artist Collaborations have to do with a film festival?
We want this event to be a seed that grows into a legacy of a better world. We are living through
historic times and one day, folks will ask you what you did.
We want to grow a community that rallies around [We]Freedom Film Fest and the values that
inspired it. With this project we are exploring how to connect these values to specific changes.

This is a WeTheWorld Campaign for Freedom project operating under the artist research
residency of Yvette Dubel and builds on her work.
