Black Lives Matter

UNLV Film actively endorses and embraces the spirit and calls to action embodied by the Black Lives Matter movement and its support for safety, respect, justice, equality, and liberty for every person in the United States, and across the world.

We are excited about the ways in which cinema can be a powerful force for positive change during this transformative time - inspiring creativity, exposing oppression, and celebrating empathy and compassion.
