Mitu Khandaker and Latoya Peterson discuss their landmark game studio, GLOW UP GAMES, and how they are foregrounding Black and Brown representation and joy through their culturally-minded games. Their recent game INSECURE: THE COME UP GAME invites players into the world of Issa Rae’s hit HBO series INSECURE through immersion with the characters they know and love and its interactive rap gameplay. With their focus on new modes and styles of gaming, Khandaker and Peterson are creating an innovative space for a vast community of underrepresented gamers and changing the landscape of gaming at every level.

“A film about fantasy and intimacy and identity play in the digital realm,” says writer and director Jane Schoenbrun (they/she) of their 2021 film WE’RE ALL GOING TO THE WORLD’S FAIR. Schoenbrun’s film reimagines trans horror in the digital age through one teenage girl’s immersion in an online role-playing game and brings dysphoria and transformation to the cinematic stage through dark but profound and emotional meditation on the humanness of change. After a screening, join the conversation with the creative minds of Schoenbrun themself and Michael Koresky (co-founder of REVERSE SHOT).

04/02/2022

Janiczca Bravo—an LA-based creator and Fusion’s 2022 Woman of the Year—is the writer and director of the exhilarating comedy-thriller, ZOLA. Based on a series of tweets by A'Ziah King, aka Zola, from 2015, ZOLA details an exhilarating road trip that transforms into a chaotic two days of “sex work, sisterhood, and betrayal.” ZOLA invites viewers into a world of unconventional characters and unfamiliar (and at times dangerous) territory, ending with the agency and empowerment of its female protagonist. This female-centered story, filled with twists and turns, depicts a weekend to remember not only through its humor and liveliness but through its honest examinations of male-dominant power structures and sexual oppression.

A conversation with NYU alum, director of ZOLA, and Fusion's Woman of the Year, the ever-luminous Janicza Bravo. Listen as Janicza explores her journey from theater student at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, to the modern film icon she is today. Then, delve into the mind of this award-winning director, whose latest film seamlessly moves between humor and white-knuckle tension, deftly articulating the state of sex work, race politics, and gender-based violence within the social media-infused landscape of modern-day Florida.

Women filmmakers are on a rise, and have been doing incredible things as of late, so thank you for promoting them! I want to recommend a film that is co-directed by a woman (Rebecca Tickell), narrated by a woman (Michelle Rodriguez), and advocating for women empowerment called The Revolution Generation: How Millennials Can Save America and the World. It is actually premiering this Friday at the Village East Theater and I will attach the poster with more info! It showcases powerful women and the work they have been doing in order to gain equality, environmental freedoms, and equal rights for all minority groups. It is done so well, and urges its audience to vote, be a part of their society, and works to break previously insinuated stereotypes of the younger generations. It stars AOC, Shailene Woodley, and more, and is also being released on Amazon and Apple TV! I highly recommend it! https://www.facebook.com/events/1040459346539482/?acontext=%7B%22ref%22%3A%2252%22%2C%22action_history%22%3A%22%5B%7B%5C%22surface%5C%22%3A%5C%22share_link%5C%22%2C%5C%22mechanism%5C%22%3A%5C%22share_link%5C%22%2C%5C%22extra_data%5C%22%3A%7B%5C%22invite_link_id%5C%22%3A1307575893098067%7D%7D%5D%22%7D

“Green” follows CJ, an up-and-coming comedian who is prepping for a show in the green room of a comedy club. When she finds out that a famous comic has dropped in for a surprise comeback set after the fallout of s*xual misconduct allegations against him, she faces the futility of trying to stop him from reclaiming the stage.

Kylie Murphy is a from New Jersey. She recently graduated from NYU Tisch School of the Arts Film and TV, where her “Green” won Best Undergraduate Film at the Fusion Film Festival. She approaches film with a DIY spirit, often writing, directing, producing, editing, and shooting her projects. She currently works as a and pre-covid also worked as a . Her latest project “Everything Is As It Should Be” is a comedy about a meditation guide living alone in the pandemic, filmed entirely over Zoom.

Celebrate Kylie Murphy and her film "Green" at our virtual film festival on October 16th! Join us for virtual screenings and filmmaker + audience Q&A.

I came across your page and wanted to say that I love what you are doing for women in film! I recently watched the film, Ruby in Paradise and thought I would share. Released in 1993, this film was moved mountains for women in film because instead of s*xualizing the main character they focused on who she was as a person. They explored the themes of feminism through Ruby working and providing for a life of her own. This film even passed the Bechdel test! I highly suggest this film, and you can find it on Amazon Prime!
Congratulations to all the filmmakers and organizers involved in the virtual Fusion Film Festival this weekend! Gotham is proud to be a sponsor thereof.
'NYU Tisch School of the Arts’ Fusion Film Festival Names Issa Rae “Woman of the Year”' -- Free to RSVP for this exclusive session, happening Friday, April 2nd! fusion21.carrd.co/-rae
Issa Rae, co-creator and star of HBO's Insecure, is Fusion Film Festival's 2021 Woman of the Year! Here's the full schedule of events from April 1-3:
I love the purpose of this filmmaker, exposure and support for women filmmakers is so important. I want to share an independent film that I found to be very powerful and that I think y'all would enjoy. It's a 1993 independent classic called "Ruby in Paradise." It follows a young woman named Ruby (excellently portrayed by Ashley Judd) who flees her hometown in rural Tennessee to find purpose and a life where she's in control. In this slice-of-life film, we see her overcome many struggles she's faced with in her journey of self-discovery. I found the story to be quite inspiring, and considering it's from 1993, it's themes on feminism are ahead of its time and still very relevant today. If you're interested, it was re-released this year so it's available on most VOD platforms like Prime Video and and iTunes. I'll link its trailer, check it out and let me know what you think!
