Strong Island director, Yance Ford to join Encounters

Encounters is thrilled to welcome Strong Island director, Yance Ford, to the Festival this year. Strong Island, a Sundance Film Festival Special Jury Prize Winner for Storytelling, is a timely and intelligent work and a painful intersection of private tragedy and public and political intransigence. Ford will be in attendance at the screening on the 6th June to present his film.

Encounters is thrilled to announce that Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis, filmmakers of the acclaimed documentary Whose Streets? will now be joining the Festival on the opening weekend. Sabaah Folayan and Damon Davis’s exceptional documentary, which premiered at Sundance, follows the story of how the killing of 18-year-old Mike Brown inspired a community to fight back and later sparked a global movement.
