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!
Visit www.antiracistclassrooom.com/representfestival for more information on how to attend and get involved! 🎞
