As an organization, The Grand Cinema denounces all racism including that toward our neighbors, friends, family members, and colleagues who are of Asian descent. We refuse to become numb to violence and hate. Read our full statement in response to the mass shooting spree that occurred in Atlanta last Tuesday. At the end are resources to recall history, better understand the current heightened climate of anti-Asian hate, and take action.

Time flies! Just ten days ago, we held the 2nd ever 253 Film Summit on the UWT campus in partnership with UWT Film Club; the day before that, we took over Urban Grace for our annual 253 Short Film Party. Two weeks prior, three dozen local filmmaking teams were racing against a 72-hour clock to create short films... to be viewed and awarded at the 253 Short Film Party.
