ABOUT THE FLAHERTY

The Flaherty is a nonprofit media arts institution recognized as a leader in its support of the documentary and other independent film and video.

Festival Statement: We are artists in action. We combat demagogues who oppose our notions of freedom and justice. In this era of uncertainty, we rebel against the lies and navigate what to accept or reject, what to learn or unlearn. We find solidarity in small local communities, and together we act creatively, speak out, and make works that challenge the status quo.

At the 65th Robert Flaherty Seminar we unite as an international community of artists—thinkers, makers, and activists—all in action. We discover and experience moments of beauty, truth, anarchy and conflict through film, as well as painting, performance, photography, text, and sound. We encounter the craftsmanship of those who are not afraid to battle deep, ethical questions, and whose actions split form and convention wide open. With careful attention to the process of making—the construction of sensuous textures and mythical imagery, the patterning of resistance and repetition, and the uses of performative interventions and idiosyncratic storytelling—we learn how to create powerful moments of aesthetic and political liberation.

While inhabiting the everyday practice of making, doing, living, suffering and protesting as artists today, we take inspiration from the poetics of the human condition, and step into a new terrain. In discourse, thought, and experience, we come together as a community in action to bear witness and shape our future.
