Ten Things for Your Sunday

  1. Our six-minute documentary “Souriyat” has been nominated for the best short film in PBS’s Reel 13 contest! The winning film gets a cash prize and is broadcast on Reel 13, the nation’s most-watched public television station.
  2. Did I mention our film “Songs from the Street” had this excellent write up in the local paper? Read about the Springfield Street Choir walking the red carpet.
  3. We are looking for new team members for this semester! Join us. More information is HERE.
  4. Did you know that the city of Springfield didn’t get its first black female police officer until 2015? Harrison Kegan from the Springfield News-Leader has this great write up.
  5. Help stop a deadly virus (kind of)–but make it fashion.
  6. It’s that time of year again! The First Friday Art Walk’s Annual Art Contest is now open and ready for submissions.
  7. HBO’s “The Vow” is undoubtedly an intriguing documentary about the modern cult —NXIVM.
  8. We have been watching as COVID cases rise at the Greene County Jail,  Missouri State University, and all over America.
  9.  On a brighter note: this film.  It isn’t intended for a specific genre, medium, trade, or denomination; it is only intended for the courageous.
