• Created and produced 30 COVID-safe Drive-ins.

• First-time $7,500 BIPOC filmmaker grant awarded to Miranda Mlilo on her first film. The film will explore key themes: generational loss of identity and culture, the question of identity and the complexities of diaspora.

• Live conversation with Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, co-writers and directors of Captain Marvel and pioneering indie filmmaker Andrew Bujalski.
