Release: Screenings from Fox Maxy’s Mental Wellness Film Workshop

With Fox Maxy

We’re delighted to join hands with the Vera List Center to co-present and host a screening and celebration of the Mental Wellness Film Workshop with Fox Maxy!

Films will be presented by participating workshop filmmakers including: Natalie Erazo, João Eduardo Freitas, Izzy Groenewegen, Symone “s” Jackson, Jard Lerebours, Naiomi Lewis, Che’Li, Ananya Malagi, Camila Palomino, ingrid romero, Aisha Servia, Liana Shewey, Jan Tancinco, Tomomi, and Elsa Wong. This will be followed by a screening of Fox Maxy’s Maat (2020).

Fox Maxy is a filmmaker known for her kaleidoscopic and thrilling films. Maxy’s films push the genre of horror and documentary, creating deeply personal and biographical reflections on survival, joy, and pleasure. Her 2022–2024 VLC Borderlands Fellowship project is a film about portals and mental health.

Maxy’s belief is that anyone and everyone can be a filmmaker. Wrapping up her 2022–2024 VLC Borderlands Fellowship, Maxy hosts a filmmaking workshop inspired by releasing heaviness through storytelling and mental wellness. Bringing this workshop to New York City, where her feature film will be set, Maxy invites participants to learn and create a short film with her over the course of several weeks. The workshop begins with introductory meetings that will be hosted on Zoom, where participants will create storyboards for their short-films. Participants have an opportunity to meet in person and film together late in the evening across New York City, with the city’s after hours as its backdrop.

Note: This workshop is part of Fox Maxy’s 2022–2024 Vera List Center Borderlands Fellowship and is organized by Camila Palomino, Curatorial Assistant. This program is co-hosted with Relative Arts and UnionDocs,  and is co-sponsored by the Center for Imagination in the Borderlands at Arizona State University.
