This week Hold On heads to one of my favorite film gatherings, BlackStar Film Festival. I've now had the honor of screening three films at the festival (including Homegoings which won the 2013 Jury Prize in Documentary) and each time I leave inspired and encouraged to continue making new work. The theme for this year's festival is Resistance, showcasing stories of global struggle. The festival will also honor returning filmmaker, Ava DuVernay. Hope to see some of you there!
