Uncut Gems

From acclaimed filmmakers Josh and Benny Safdie comes an electrifying crime thriller about Howard Ratner (Adam Sandler), a charismatic New York City jeweler always on the lookout for the next big score. When he makes a series of high-stakes bets that could lead to the windfall of a lifetime, Howard must perform a precarious high-wire act, balancing business, family, and encroaching adversaries on all sides, in his relentless pursuit of the ultimate win.

Represent Film Festival, hosted @antiracistclassroom, is a short film festival by and for young filmmakers of color. We’re here to share your stories, create new conversations, spark communities and offer you the space to feel seen. This was created for you.
Represent Fest will take place This Saturday on October 5th @downtownindependent in Los Angeles, California. The festival will include a day-long program, presenting films from three genres—narrative, animation and documentary—followed by curated panel discussions that shift the narrative toward one that encompasses the wealth of talent, creativity, and diversity we seek in this field.
The film screenings will be followed by curated workshops and discussions featuring speakers such as @cooperfilms, @chazdraws & @brittney.janae. Come through, meet someone new and learn something new!
