DocuMentality is an expanding initiative seeking to normalize conversations about mental health in the documentary industry and provide best-practice guidance for filmmakers. The project began with efforts in the UK and US. Now, the Documentary Organization of Canada (DOC) is spearheading a new wave of focus groups with support from the Canada Media Fund. On this panel, we’ll hear from DocuMentality team member Malikkah Rollins and DOC’s Sarah Spring about the past, present, and future of the movement. We’ll also hear from filmmaker Rebeca Huntt describing what she learned about maintaining mental balance in the making of her intensely personal film Beba, which premiered at TIFF last year. Moderator: Inney Prakash (Maysles Documentary Center)
