Call for Submissions: Taking Up Space Film Festival

Members News

Taking Up Space (under the artistic direction of Dan Kimbrough, our tech director and CEO of Park Multimedia) is seeking short works that are created and told by BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, Persons of Color) filmmakers. The purpose of the film festival is to lift the voices of historically excluded racial and ethnic narratives.

The films will be screened during the 2022 Scranton Fringe Festival on Friday, October 7th, and Saturday, October 8th at the beautiful Peoples Security Bank Theater at Lackawanna College. The films will be screened in person and will also be available online as well. A talkback with the filmmakers will take place on Saturday, October 8th. The full 2022 Fringe line-up will be announced soon. 

Taking Up Space Film Festival is sponsored by Park Multimedia, the Black Scranton Project, and Fringe. Any companies or organizations interested in becoming a sponsor of this new initiative are encouraged to contact us.
