NBPC and ITVS Launch Virtual Screenings From The Masculinity Project

Posted on June 25, 2009
The National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC) and the Independent Television Service (ITVS) are launching a weekly, web-based “virtual screening" series, June 25-July 30, which will showcase some of the latest thought-provoking and highly-acclaimed short documentaries from The Masculinity Project. Each screening will be followed by a Q&A to give audience members worldwide the opportunity to engage with the filmmakers. Launched in November 2008 by NBPC, ITVS and the help of national partners, The Masculinity Project is an interactive multimedia and community engagement initiative. The initiative delves beyond stereotypes to reveal what it means to be a black man in America through an online mix of new and re-released works from emerging and veteran filmmakers, focusing on the areas of community, justice, culture and family. The first “virtual screening” will be tonight at 8:00 PM EDT and feature the film ANDREW (INVISIBLE MEN), by Angela Tucker, which looks into the lives of two former homeless men in New York City. Watch ANDREW (INVISIBLE MEN) tonight and join the discussion >> Learn more about The Masculinity Project >>
