CSFilm mourns the passing of our long-time friend, supporter and fellow filmmaker, Denise Marika

August 23, 2018

Denise Marika was bold and visionary, energetic and friendly, and incredibly determined. Her early moral and financial support of the New Immigrant and Refugee Visions (NIRV) project were critical in making the training and the films a reality. Even as she struggled with breast cancer, she came regularly to the training sessions to share her wisdom, mentor our immigrant filmmakers, and inspire us all with her passion and joy. She will be deeply missed.

Denise died on July 10th, in her home in Brookline, at the age of 63. A memorial will be held in Lexington on Sunday August 26th. View the memorial for Denise Marika.

Michael called on FCTV to join him in working to educate the public about the importance of who selects and reports our news. Once the public starts hearing from more local voices we will begin to understand what the issues are that need to be addressed. We haven’t yet begun a dialogue based on good information.
