BlackStar Film Festival
August 17, 2016
A few weeks ago, I had the privilege of working on the staff of the BlackStar Film Festival for a 2nd year in a row!
This year's theme was migration, something that affects each of our communities. Along with the Communications Intern, we curated migration stories which featured filmmakers from the festival talking about how this theme has surfaced in their lives.
The featured artists included Roni Nicole Henderson, Blitz the Ambassador, Heidi Saman, Raafi Rivero, Shola Amoo, and Musa Syeed.
Additionally, I coordinated the Festival and daily newsletters!
