"Cross My Heart" by Sontenish Myers Courtesy of Fusion Film Festival
Fusion Film Festival announced their lineup and finalists this week for their 16th festival on April 5-7. The festival aims to highlight female Tisch students and alumni.
Graduate Film's own alumna Brittany “B.Monét” Fennell will be one of the panelists in the "Artists & Activists" panel on April 6. Fennell was the the 2017 Horizon Award winner at the Sundance Film Festival. She is also a recipient of the Adrienne Shelly Foundation grant and a directing fellow for Film Independent’s residency program Project Involve and one of the winners for the #NewView film competition with Glamour and Girlgaze.
Besides the "Artists & Activists" panel there will also be a brunch with NBC Universal’s Senior VP of Programming Talent Development & Inclusion Karen Horne, a discussion with members of the Queer Producers Collective, and other events throughout the weekend. The festival will culminate with the awards ceremony.
