In this Grassroots Perspectives podcast, Janis is visiting with Emily Verellen, Director of Programs and Communications with The Fledgling Fund, a private foundation driven by the passionate belief that film can inspire a better world.

Janis and Emily are talking about how film can be used to engage communities in timely issues, help teach students about complex topics, bring people together around a common story, spark conversation and inspire action.  Emily is also talking about how The Fledging Fund uses grants that support outreach and audience engagement and shares their knowledge, experience and the lessons learned to strengthen the field of social issue documentary film.
