I am proud to be Co-Producer and Event Planner for Mixed Remixed, an exciting new media festival celebrating racial and cultural connectedness. This year's event was held on June 10, 2017, at The Los Angeles Theater Center in downtown Los Angeles.
Mixed Remixed brings together film and book lovers, innovative and emerging artists, and multiracial families and individuals for workshops, readings, film screenings and live performance including music, comedy and spoken word.
Mixed Remixed is brought to you by Heidi Durrow, a founder of the original multiracial/multicultural film and book festival, and an incredible group of volunteers. The original festival showcased many talented filmmakers, writers, and performers including Key & Peele, Rebecca Walker, Kip Fulbeck, Danzy Senna, Carleen Brice, Kim Wayans & Kevin Knotts, Angela Nissel, Neil Aitken, Mat Johnson, Faith Adiele, Sundee Frasier, Karyn Parsons, Dr. Maya Soetoro-Ng and many many more. Mixed Remixed promises to be even bigger and better and will also highlight playwrights, visual artists and multidisciplinary artists!
Through film screenings, readings, workshops and performance, the Remixed highlights previously untold stories of our connectedness as a community and a nation across cultural, racial and religious divides; provides a safe, positive forum for honest discussions about race and culture; encourages emerging storytellers’ careers; and promotes the Mixed experience as a valuable prism with which to view issues of social justice and change.
The Mixed Remixed Festival is a 501(c)(3) non=profit arts organization.
