Virtual Filmmaker Chats

Posted on

While ACT’s 2020 festival is postponed, some of the festival’s programmed short films are online and others were available for a short time. In April and May 2020, ACT hosted online chats with filmmakers to keep the conversation and community going while physical distancing happens. ACT was thrilled to connect with 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). Read more about ACT’s At Home endeavors in this Rocky Mountain Collegian article and watch the interviews.

Hiplet: Because We Can is directed by Addison Wright.

Available to watch online:

A Line Birds Cannot See by Amy Bench (note: the film “Separated by Smugglers” is correct).

Betye Saar: Taking Care of Business by Christine Turner.
