Represent Film Festival is a short-film festival dedicated to shifting the narratives told about people of color through stories that reflect on our ever-growing dreams, realities and imaginations.
The festival aims to provide a platform for us to share our own narratives on our own terms. Whether through production, talent, or storytelling, it is essential that we have a role in the frameworks of filmmaking that allows us to reflect our own cultural, ethnic, and linguistic identities.
Presented by the Antiracist Classroom, Represent is an opportunity to discuss, deconstruct, and express what’s missing from the film industry and what we hope to see more of in the future.
The event will be hosted on Saturday, October 5th 2019 in Los Angeles, California at Downtown Independent. The festival will include a day-long program, presenting films from three genres—narrative, animation and documentary—followed by curated panel discussions that shift the narrative toward one that encompasses the wealth of talent, creativity, and diversity we seek in this field.
