Black Lives Matter
The Jacob Burns Film Center mourns the killings of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and countless other Black Americans suffering injustice every day across our nation. We encourage all who can to support through action, donation, self-examination, and education. Each of us can participate. We must not be silent.
As a film nonprofit, we have a responsibility to expand accessibility, onscreen representation, and opportunities to stories and storytellers from marginalized communities. We take this duty seriously and commit to always strive to do better.
