Firelight Media

Firelight Media We Make Docs: HBCU RISING; FREEDOM RIDERS; THE BLACK PANTHERS; FREEDOM SUMMER | We Develop/Fund Filmmakers telling stories that are that are underrepresented in the mainstream media.
From the “Freedom Riders" to "Emmett Till" to the "American Indian Movement" to "The Black Panthers," we at Firelight are engaged in telling stories about pivotal events, movements, and people in American history. For us, media can transform passive viewers into active citizens. Through film broadcasts, community engagement campaigns, multi-platform applications and our flagship mentoring program—The Documentary Lab, Firelight Films and its non-profit sister group, Firelight Media, are dedicated to harnessing the power of story-driven media as tools for education and action. Firelight Media was founded in 1998 as an independent non-profit production company and has been best known for producing high-quality powerful productions for PBS and its dynamic educational outreach campaigns. However, in 2008, Firelight Media expanded its work to include developing and supporting the next generation of filmmakers. Due to this expansion, Firelight productions spearheaded by Stanley Nelson are now done under a new for-profit entity called Firelight Films.

Stanley Nelson, an Emmy-winning MacArthur “genius” Fellow, is co-founder and Executive Director of Firelight Media, which provides technical education and professional support to emerging documentarians; and co-founder of the for-profit documentary production company, Firelight Films. His latest films include "Freedom Riders", scheduled to air on PBS' "American Experience" in May 2011 and "Wounded Knee", which is part of the landmark series on Native Americans We Shall Remain, which aired on PBS in May 2009. Both films premiered at the Sundance Film Festival in 2010 and 2009 respectively. Nelson’s oeuvre spans the range of documentary forms. "Jonestown: The Life and Death of Peoples Temple" previewed in April 2006 at the Tribeca and San Francisco Film Festivals to sold-out audiences and won awards at both festivals. "Jonestown" was subsequently shortlisted for the Academy Awards and won the International Documentary Association Award for its use of archival footage. The 2005 film, "Sweet Honey in the Rock: Raise Your Voice" documented one of our country’s most vibrant and progressive music ensembles and premiered on American Masters, the multi-award winning PBS series. Nelson’s 2004 "A Place of Our Own", a semi-autobiographical look at the African American middle class, was shown at the Sundance Film Festival documentary competition and in national broadcast on PBS’ acclaimed series Independent Lens. His 2003 film, "The Murder of Emmett Till", was broadcast nationally on PBS’ American Experience to rave reviews, and Nelson went on to win the Primetime Emmy for Best Directing, nonfiction; the Special Jury Prize at the 2003 Sundance Film Festival; a coveted award from the International Documentary Association; and the highest honor in broadcast journalism, the George Foster Peabody award, among many others. His 2001 film,"Running: the Campaign for City Council, highlighted the impact of campaign finance reform on local elections in New York City and was honored with the Henry Hampton award from the Council on Foundations and a CINE Golden Eagle. With five films in competition at Sundance in ten years and multiple industry awards to his credit, Nelson is acknowledged as one of the premier documentary filmmakers working today. In 2004, he received the CINE Leadership Award for his body of work, and his films have individually won nearly every award in film and broadcasting. His 2002 film "Marcus Garvey: Look for Me in the Whirlwind" was named best production of the year by the Black Filmmakers’ Hall of Fame and the Black International Cinema Festival in Berlin; his 1999 film, "The Black Press: Soldiers without Swords", won a duPont-Columbia Silver Baton and the Sundance Film Festival’s Freedom of Expression award, was named Best Documentary at the San Francisco Film Festival, and won an Emmy nomination. "Two Dollars and a Dream: The Story of Madame C. J. Walker and A’lelia Walker" was named Best Film of the Decade by the Black Filmmaker Foundation. Nelson’s work has also received broad recognition outside the film and television community. In 2004, he received the Educational Video Center’s Excellence in Community Service award and was honored by New York Lawyers in the Public Interest. His film "Beyond Brown: Pursuing the Promise" has served as a centerpiece for reflection on the 50th anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education by such organizations as the NAACP, the National Baptist Convention, and the Children’s Defense Fund since airing nationally on PBS in May 2004. Nelson cites as one of his greatest achievements the impact of his film "The Murder of Emmett Till" in the reopening of the investigation of the 1955 murder of a 14-year-old Black boy for whistling at a white woman. In its announcement of this historic move, the U.S. Justice Department cited the presence of witnesses unearthed in the film as the major factor in their decision. The massive card and letter-writing campaign engineered by Nelson’s production company undoubtedly made a difference as well. In recent years, Nelson has also served as Executive Producer on a number of award winning films including," HIP HOP: Beyond Beats and Rhymes"," Faubourg Treme – The Untold Story of Black New Orleans", and "Faces of Change". Nelson’s other award-winning, independently produced films include "Methadone: Curse or Cure"; "Free Within Ourselves", a profile of four contemporary African American artists; and "Puerto Rico: Our Right to Decide". His credits as a television producer include "What Can We Do About Violence?", a Bill Moyers program; "Listening To America" with Bill Moyers; and Michael Moore’s "TV Nation". Nelson was a Senior Consultant to the award-winning HBO program, "On the Record" with Bob Costas. Nelson holds a B.F.A. in film from the City College of New York. He was a fellow at the American Film Institute and a Revson Fellow at Columbia University, served on the Fulbright media fellowship committee, and was a Regents’ Lecturer at the University of California. He has taught film at Howard University and the Graduate School of Journalism’s Documentary Program at University of California Berkeley. He served as the Belle Zeller Visiting Professor in Public Policy at Brooklyn College and has trained broadcast journalists in Rwanda. Nelson is a frequent speaker on new media and the “digital future” for filmmakers of color. He is a regular lecturer at the Corporation for Public Broadcasting’s National Producers Academy. Nelson served as a juror for the documentary competitions of the 2004 Tribeca Film Festival, the 2002 Sundance Film Festival, the 2002 Independent Feature Project, and the National Endowment for the Humanities media panel.

In 1998, Firelight Media was co-founded by director/producer Stanley Nelson, an Emmy-winning MacArthur “genius” Fellow, and Marcia Smith, an award-winning writer and visionary, who has worked extensively in philanthropy, government, arts and politics. During its first ten years, Firelight Media operated as a non-profit production company dedicated to developing social-issue films that aired nationally on PBS. Firelight won numerous awards and enjoyed great critical acclaim, with five films in the documentary competition at the Sundance Film Festival in ten years, two of which won awards (The Black Press: Soldiers Without Swords won the Freedom of Expression Award in 1999; The Murder of Emmett Till won the Special Jury Prize in 2003). Firelight’s films won every major industry award, including a du-Pont Columbia Silver Baton, a Peabody, the International Documentary Association, and numerous festival awards. In addition to a focus on excellence in filmmaking, Firelight has a long history and ongoing commitment to the development and implementation of targeted outreach efforts related to its films. Firelight developed outreach campaigns around a number of past titles, including The Black Press: Soldiers Without Swords (1999), Running: The Campaign for City Council (2001), The Murder of Emmett Till (2003) and Beyond Brown: Pursuing the Promise (2004). Beyond Brown served as a centerpiece for reflection on the 50th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education by such organizations as the NAACP, the National Baptist Convention, and the Children’s Defense Fund since airing nationally on PBS in May 2004. Firelight’s crowning achievement is the massive card and letter-writing campaign for The Murder of Emmett Till that contributed to the recent reopening of the murder investigation. In its announcement of this historic move, the U.S. Justice Department cited the presence of witnesses unearthed in the film as a major factor in their decision. In 2008, based on tremendous success, Firelight expanded. Firelight Media shifted its focus to provide technical education and professional support to emerging documentarians, and Firelight Films, a new for-profit entity dedicated solely to producing Stanley Nelson’s films, was launched.

Join UnionDocs for BEING SINGULAR PLURAL, a workshop that explores the formally rich, ever-expanding landscape of expanded personal filmmaking practices. From December 6-8th, participants and instructors will dive into what it means to tell stories that are personal, vulnerable, and ethical and reflect on how to steer away from the trappings of predictability and narcissism.

Lead instructors Samara Grace Chadwick (Points North Institute, 1999) and Cecilia Aldarondo (Memories of a Penitent Heart) have gathered an amazing lineup of guest instructors to help participants reimagine how the personal is political and think through how to position personal work against the pressures of industry. Guests include Alan Berliner (First Cousin Once Removed), Ellie Ga (Gyres), Hannah Buck (Vision Portraits), and Monika Navarro (Tribeca Film Institute).

Firelight Media Documentary Lab Has Its 2019 Fellows From Underrepresented Communities

EXCLUSIVE! Firelight announces 2019 Documentary Lab Fellows, in time for the 10 year celebration of the fellowship that nurtures an inclusive network of talented, unique filmmakers of color to receive ongoing support from conception to completion.

“A lot has changed since we first started the Documentary Lab 10 years ago,” Firelight VP and Documentary Lab director Loira Limbal said. “Documentaries have become popular, the number of distribution platforms have doubled, and almost everyone agrees that we are experiencing the golden age of documentaries. Yet, there are still structural barriers for filmmakers of color to enter into the field. Ten years later we remain steadfast in our belief in the importance of people of color being able to tell their own stories.”
