Our newest program brings regional filmmakers, collaborators, and co-conspirators together for discussions on identity, creativity, and activism.
Session 1: Laron Marquez Chapman and Rev. T. Sheri Amore Dickerson discuss the Black Lives Matter movement, why representation matters, and Laron's timely feature film, You People.
Session 2: Yousef Kazemi and Sara Cunningham discuss the importance of telling your story and their individual journeys with the LGBTQ+ community that lead to Free Mom Hugs and Yousef's short film, The Stand-In.
Session 3: Stephanie Salyer and Maverick Knox discuss collaborating on film projects for their Masters program and navigating expectations of their stories based on their perceived identities rather than their lived experiences.
