This episode explores the intersections of Black Cinema and audience engagement through intentional viewing experiences.

Our latest episode features Anthony Andrews, co-founder and creative director of We Are Parable, speaking about the importance of establishing memorable and emotionally connective communal experiences during screenings as a way to bring viewers out of their homes and back into the cinema. The film screening experience has changed as streaming has become the norm, and We Are Parable are redefining and recontextualizing what it means to see a film in a theatre by creating unique and culturally relevant events that celebrate the best of Black Cinema with audiences.
