ACT At Home: Virtual Screenings and Conversations

Need some culture from your couch? In this unprecedented time, ACT At Home will keep conversations around human rights and social justice going through a series of virtual events. Just like any ACT event, these programs will include the opportunity to connect – with one another or with filmmakers, activists, or other experts. We hope you join us virtually and we are looking forward to reconvening and celebrating as a community once again.

ACT Shorts in the Museum: Virtual Movie Night

Check out our ACT Shorts in the Museum: Virtual Movie Night program where we pair film and art and explore intersecting themes. This program is presented in partnership with Colorado State University’s Gregory Allicar Museum of Art.

Watch the 16-minute short film I AM YUP’IK free online and then hear a 13-minute program by ACT’s artistic director Scott Diffrient and Gregory Allicar Museum of Art director and chief curator Lynn Boland on sports culture and identity. Learn more.

ACT At Home: Conversations with Filmmakers

In conversation with ACT’s managing director Beth Seymour, filmmakers Amy Bench (A Line Birds Cannot See), Erin Wright (Betye Saar: Taking Care of Business), Kira Dane and Katelyn Rebelo (Mizuko), and Addison Wright (Hiplet: Because We Can) chat about their films, creative processes, and what they are working on next. ACT At Home conversations with filmmakers are recorded and posted on our digital archive page.
