We were thrilled to recently announce the recipients of the 2017 Sarah Jacobson Film Grant: Alyx Arumpac and Ja’Tovia Gary. Their projects knocked us out and you can get more details about both of them here. I’m grateful to Katie Bradshaw for help with the grant and the two panelists this year, Veronica Majano and Natasha Mendonca. For those of you who don’t know, Sarah Jacobson was a great underground/indie filmmaker and an inspiration and dear pal of mine. She died of cancer in 2004 and we’ve been doing this grant for ten years now to keep her spirit alive. She’d be thrilled by this year’s grantees and to know that her name is helping to get radical and feminist work out into the world.
