Revolution Me Films has created a diverse community of media artists and filmmakers. We offer a platform to democratize films from all over the world with the Revolution Me Film Festival. In addition, we are now offering educational workshops. Revolution Me Media Labs is dedicated to teaching high school students and young adults the creative skills to tell their own stories.
Revolution Me Festival was founded in 2016 by Maria Palacio. For the last five years, Revolution Me Film Festival has successfully showcased films from around the world in Brooklyn and online (this past year). In the Fall of 2020, she partnered up with long-time friend and member of her Long Island University Media Arts MFA cohort, Charulata L. Dyal, to establish the Revolution Me Media Lab.
When asked how she came up with the name, Revolution Me, Maria answered:
When I think back to my days at Bushwick Community High School, and learning about Black Panthers, The Civil Rights Movement, Kent State, and revolution as an idea, it moved me. To feel and acknowledge that there is a revolution inside all of us is what makes things happen. I wanted to create a community that feels this.
