February Filmmaker Talk
Our third installment of Filmmaker's Talk is back, but this time, with a TWIST! We're hosting a panel discussion focused on the upcoming Academy Awards. We'll discuss queer nominees, those who didn't make the list and should have, and how queer and minority representation at the Academy has, or hasn't, changed.
