“There’s been a lot of talk in the last year about diversity and inclusion in our industry, but Nacelle’s partnership with North Maple is more than talk — it’s about action,” Arnold and Perera jointly said. “Together with Nacelle, North Maple is determined to amplify stories and filmmakers about and from historically excluded groups, whose points of view have long been described as ‘niche.’
“Our stories are not ‘niche,’ they’re universal and the more we can reflect the specificity of our experiences in film & TV, the better chance we have to find common ground — something we need now more than ever.”
“From the moment I met Naisha and Rushie, it was obvious their creative and strategic vision aligned with ours. I’m eager to see where this partnership takes us,” said Volk-Weiss, CEO of Nacelle.
