2020 Filmetry Festival
The 2020 Filmetry Festival, despite being interrupted by the COVID pandemic, was a huge success. 11 filmmakers created a terrific set of films based around the anthology RESPECT: The Poetry of Detroit Music. As it became clear the in-person festival could not go ahead as planned, the organizers pivoted to a virtual premiere event, with nearly 200 viewers tuning in live. After the film premiere, a great group of filmmakers and poets gathered virtually for a Q&A session which was broadcast live on YouTube.
