Flare Productions is a not-for-profit filmmaking organization founded to produce artistic, deeply-researched, lively and engaging films which can be viewed with enjoyment both by people who already know a great deal about a subject and those who are being introduced to it for the first time.
The studio is dedicated to working collaboratively to produce films and videos which cross boundaries and can be broadcast internationally as well as used in universities and schools.
Flare is run by its founder, John Fuegi, and by Jo Francis, who also co-direct the Women of Power series of films. John and Jo currently serve respectively as President/Treasurer and Vice President/Secretary of the Board of Directors, whose present members are Catherine Good Abbott, Ursula Daniels, Kathryn Maleney, Martha Nell Smith, and Emma Lew Thomas.
Flare has worked closely with institutions such as Heidelberg, Bochum, the Bertolt Brecht Archive-Berlin, London University, the Imperial War Museum and Cambridge University. Flare co-produced project participants include: Liv Ullmann, Githa Nørby, Ian Redford, and Anna Massey.
Flare had a past professional connection with the Maryland Institute for Technology in the Humanities (MITH) at the University of Maryland, and the Michelle R. Clayman Institute for Gender Research (formerly known as the Institute for Research on Women and Gender) at Stanford University.
