More About The Art of Living Well: "Who Will Start Another Fire" Plus Director Q&A With Jer

Tuesday, November 2 (with Directors Talk) & Sunday, November 7 (Encore Screening)
Who Will Start Another Fire is a collection of nine films by emerging filmmakers from underrepresented communities around the world, presented by the new distribution initiative Dedza Films.
Each of these stories is personal and distinctly told, but unified by themes of rebirth and growth.
The November 2 screening includes a post-film virtual Q&A featuring directors Jermaine Manigault (Not Black Enough), Emily Packer (By Way of Canarsie), & Lesley Steele (By Way of Canarsie).

Dedza Films is a distribution initiative dedicated to curating and facilitating the distribution of films from the next wave with a focus on underrepresented communities and early works of emerging storytellers.

Dedza aims to treat these stories in a way that is often reserved for features and help filmmakers who were impacted by COVID-19, which affected festival and release plans. Their mission is to curate, community build, and partner with other initiatives and organizations focusing on changing the landscape.
