Stage 32 to Help Filmmakers Affected by SXSW Cancellation

My brotha from another mother Stage 32 CEO RB Botto, (listen to the many interviews I’ve had with him here) is trying to help filmmakers affected by the cancellation of SXSW Film Festival because of the Coronavirus scare. For more info read below.

With last Friday’s cancellation of the 2020 SXSW festival due to concerns of the health and safety of attendees due to the Coronavirus, we have announced that we will give officially selected SXSW filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their projects on the Stage 32 platform beginning in April. Stage 32 will provide access to the films to its global community of over 600,000 members, which includes distributors, buyers, and sales agents, as well as hundreds of executives and educators who work with Stage 32 including managers, agents, financiers, development execs, and producers.

As filmmakers, producers, screenwriters, and actors ourselves, all of us at Stage 32 are devastated for all the filmmakers, and everyone involved with their films, including hundreds of Stage 32 members, impacted by the canceling of SXSW.

With the sad reality that the situation with the coronavirus will likely cause more festival cancellations, we want to assure that these filmmakers and their connections get the exposure their work so richly deserves. Our goal is to not only shine a light on their incredible talent, but also to facilitate connections to sales agents, distributors, buyers, managers, agents, and other professionals who have the power to showcase their work to the largest audience possible and also make a significant impact in the path of their careers.

When the time comes, I hope that all of you will take the time to view the films posted to our platform.

Until then, we’re trying to get a rallying cry and groundswell of support for these filmmakers and would appreciate your support. If you know of any creatives, professionals, organizations or other groups that can help spread the word, please let them know what we’re doing for the filmmakers.

I want to thank RB and Stage 32 for helping these filmmakers. I can only imagine the heartbreak this cancellation has caused.
