The Stories from the Field Film Festival Archive is officially launched!
What you are seeing is the original site redesigned as an archive for documents from the 2005, 2006, and 2007 festivals.
If you’re reading about us for the first time, visit our About page and the festival pages to your left to see why a group of intrepid volunteers were so inspired by the Stories vision that we spent four years of our lives to keep it going. Of course, if you’re an old friend, you already know why. In which case, you can reminisce with us about the New York festival that made the Millennium Development Goals come alive.
As one of the festival producers, I have been loathe to see our work fade into oblivion. It has taken me nearly three years to find the time to do what I have wanted to do since we closed: pay proper tribute to the vision, dedication, and effort that went into creating Stories from the Field. It was a truly amazing accomplishment that touched many lives. These pages give me a chance to say congratulations to all who were a part of it.
As time permits, I will be uploading photos and other memorabilia to another site, and providing links to them here. So, although this is an archive, it is still a living document.
To old friends and new, I welcome your comments and I hope you enjoy your visit!
