BLACK CULTURE IN FILM
This panel will explore Black culturalism in the film and entertainment context, looking at the stereotypes, challenges, and advances both the industry and Black creators have seen over time. Ranging from historical accounts of Black culture in film to modern-day inclusion, film experts and talent will discuss and celebrate themes from traditional African society, the power, representation, and evolution of Black women, the influence of Black music in film, dress, and attire, to the preservation of identity.
Panelists: Alrick Brown, Writer, Director, and Assistant Professor at NYU Tisch, Leslie Fields-Cruz, Executive Director, Black Public Media, and Kimberly Browning, Festival Director of Hollywood Shorts Film Festival, Producer and Director
