Comprising programmers who are POCs, women and TSLGBTQ+*, the objective of the recently formed POC2 (Programmers of Colour Collective) is to advocate for a more inclusive programming pool worldwide. Festival programmers are curators of culture, tastemakers and ultimately decision-makers whose choices define whose voices will be heard and whose narratives will be seen. Like film critics, they form an integral part of the filmic eco-system whose choices, in the eyes of the film industry and the general public, also define the value given to the films they select at film festivals.
