Sundance 2022 is set by the Blackhouse Foundation

The Blackhouse Foundation has set its programming schedule for this year's virtual on Sundance's virtual Main Street.

We are privileged to have a unique partnership with Meta, which will provide immersive content to our audience of creatives and digital festival participants. In 2021, Blackhouse and Meta will significantly increase their impact on our student filmmaker fellows.

In addition to this year's programming, Blackhouse has expanded opportunities for Black creatives by providing information on financial, production, marketing, and distribution resources.

In the coming days, more virtual activities, discussions, and community gatherings will be planned, but the recently announced programming, sponsored by Meta, is listed below.

Meta and Blackhouse present "Being SEEN: The Black Filmmakers Journey," which is moderated by Blackhouse executive director Jenean Glover. It also features Blackhouse co-founder Brickson Diamond and Meta's head of entertainment creative shop, Jen Barrett.

Meta's Black Creator program, led by Michelle Mitchell (Meta, Media Partnerships) will engage in a candid conversation with Mama Tina, the co-founder of the WACO Theater Center. Together, this group of creatives will discuss their careers and their role in the process.

This project was inspired by Alexander-Julian (AJ) Gibbson (Creative Director) and Shakeil Greeley (Brand and Editorial Director) and a panel of experts. It's crucial to find out how immigrants experience each other, and how they relate to their respective experiences.
