Mimesis is proud to partner with Flaherty in supporting the dynamic, passionate, and global documentary community by bringing important works of nonfiction media to Colorado and beyond.

The Center for Documentary and Ethnographic Media at the University of Colorado Boulder, host of the Mimesis Documentary Festival, has partnered with the Flaherty media arts organization to create Flaherty x Boulder, a new series showcasing important works of historical and contemporary documentary media art.

Flaherty x Boulder operates year-round, with its premier event at the annual Mimesis Documentary Festival. Inspired by the famed Flaherty Seminar, FxB programs are thoughtfully curated to foster deep conversations and provide interactive experiences for artists, scholars, and audiences.
