KFTC helped make an animated series premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival!

We are thrilled to announce that KFTC was part of a team of storytellers and organizers who created MINE, an animated web series making its world premiere at the 2021 Tribeca Film Festival – and to invite you to watch the virtual premiere and Q&A from Monday, June 14 at 7pm ET!

Shifting the conversation about what is possible here in Kentucky is at the heart of KFTC’s work. We know that our movement is strongest when we break down the barriers between art and organizing, and when people bring their imaginations and unique talents to this work.

Since 2018, KFTC has participated in a cohort of organizers, advocates, artists, and multimedia storytellers from across the country. Over the years, this group sharpened their skills for narrative strategy and created a suite of creative projects that advance a vision for our communities by transforming the stories we tell about their past, present and future.

MINE is a sci-fi story set in a vibrant utopia. But when a magical, healing water source is threatened, an intrepid teen named Blaze must save their community before it’s too late. The series explores the difficult and worthwhile fight for the place you call home.

We’re so excited to share this story with our members, and hope you can join us (virtually) at Tribeca!
