The Ethics of Representations: Who Has the Right to Tell the Story?

The Boston University Department of Film and Television and CILECT North America present "The Ethics of Representation: Who Has the Right to Tell the Story?" a one-day online conference on Friday, November 17th, 2023. The past decade has seen an explosion of new voices in the film and television industry. With this new generation of storytellers comes increased social consciousness and an awareness that representation doesn’t just mean featuring people of color on screen; representation means recognizing that diverse stories are owned by the communities they portray. For the first time, writers, directors, producers, casting agents, studio executives, and more are asking, “Whose story is this, and who has the right to tell it?” This one-day conference will explore these challenging issues through a series of presentations and discussions. We aim to engender constructive conversation and develop a framework for addressing our students’ most pressing concerns around the ethics and politics of representation.
