Patricia Zimmermann, Professor of Screen Studies and Codirector of the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival, was a featured presenter at the August 18 Film Quarterly Webinar on We Tell: Fifty Years of Participatory Community Media, the national touring exhibition coprogrammed by Zimmermann and Louis Massiah from Scribe Video. 

The new word is co-creation.  

But for decades, socially conscious documentaries were produced by groups of dedicated individuals working for change.  

Film Quarterly mounted a webinar to investigate the history of political and socially engaged community documentary production, inspired by this landmark retrospective national touring exhibition. 

Film Quarterly Editor in Chief B. Ruby Rich moderated a conversation extremely relevant for our perilous times of disruption of media systems, practices, and technologies.  The webinar attracted a large national and international audience. 

Panelists included Maggie Bowman, Kartemquin Films and International Documentary Association; Carmel Curtis, archivist at Indiana University and XFR Collective; Darcy McKinnon, New Orleans Video Access Center; Louis Messiah, Scribe Video Philadelphia; Spencer Nakasako, Vietnamese Youth Development Center; Angela Aguayo. University of Illinois; and Zimmermann.

Angela Aguayo reviewed We Tell for the current (Summer 2020) issue of Film Quarterly.
