Film screenings and discussions of the importance of representation in film and the opportunities independent films offer marginalized communities as they seek to tell their own stories.

This two-day event includes screenings of various short films from AdeRisa Productions, under the direction of Adelina Anthony and Marisa Becerra. Their company focuses on producing Two Spirit, LGBTQ+POC films with an emphasis on Xicana/o/x, Chicanx, Mexican, and Latinx stories. The first event includes a discussion with Anthony and Becerra and a screening of six award-winning short films: The Good Kind (2014), Gold Star (2016), Amigas with Benefits (2017), Guarding Santos (2019), Ode to Pablo (2019), and La Serenata (2019). The second event is a workshop designed for students interested in creating and funding independent films.
