Polyphonic aims to influence social change by providing filmmakers and artists with an equal opportunity to tell stories about social and economic injustices that will empower and influence social change. This organization also aims to provide artists and filmmakers with a creative space to work and engage the community. Polyphonic exhibits and produces films about oppressed individuals and communities of color and/or poverty.
Currently, in Sarasota, FL, many independent filmmakers and documentarians don't have access to funding for their projects. Polyphonic helps creators bring their projects to life by providing funding to these artists. Polyphonic also exhibits the projects in public and private screenings, providing a unique opportunity to artists who have difficulties being accepted by or entering into national and local film festivals.
All funds raised will be used to create and screen films that will influence social change.
Polyphonic Incorporated was founded by Jessika Ward, a journalist and documentarian.
