Short Film Saturdays

Live film screenings & Q&A’s w/ emerging filmmakers of color.

Join us on Youtube live for Short Film Saturdays! Discover the Global South Diasporas’ hottest emerging filmmakers for live short film screenings followed by interactive Q&As with the directors. Why short films? Often celebrated and then shelved, shorts are a filmmaker’s purest, rawest form of artistic expression, and executed within the boundaries of smaller production budgets. Most short films don’t get seen beyond the festival circuit. We can’t think of a better way to open our minds to new stories, cultures & POVs!
