What if Black queer and trans people had the resources to tell our own stories through film? In this strategy session, facilitated by House of Pentacles, we will get the opportunity to self-identify our individual and collective skills, achievements, and areas of growth in film, while strategizing about funneling additional film resources and opportunities into Black queer and trans communities. This session is for Black queer and trans filmmakers of all experience levels.
