My feature-length documentary, currently in post-production, Cómo Vivimos, has been unanimously selected as one of ten projects to participate in the third cycle of the iMEdD International Incubator for Media Education and Development. Funded by the Stavros Niarchos Foundation, the iMEdD incubator hosts organizations and individuals from around the world who are pursuing innovative, ethical, and high quality independent journalistic projects which “earn broad trust” and “have the potential to inform society and empower individuals to create change.” The incubator affords financial and strategic support to awardees for a period of nine months to make significant advances on our films / projects under the guidance of professional journalists.
This award allows the film and I to work with a very dedicated team of professionals who recognize the value of the film and who have the resources and know-how to help take the film forward a few steps. As part of this year’s cohort, I’ll connect with filmmakers and media professionals, many of whom are also pursuing urgent stories pertaining to migration, citizenship, and state power. iMEdD is also generously supporting post-production services for the film.
