The Bridgeport Film Fest is a three-day short-film festival with both virtual and in-person viewing options. Hosted in partnership with first-time grantee Groundwork Bridgeport ($4,999 Quick Grant), the festival will bring the community together through film screenings, workshops and panel discussions focusing on Black stories, queer film and the representation of women in and behind the camera.
“We believe that Bridgeport can be a hub for the arts and humanities in CT, with a diverse and thriving artistic scene and a community that’s always looking for enriching events and opportunities to connect with one another,” says Jason Coombs, actor, director, teaching artist and treasurer at Groundwork Bridgeport. “We are grateful to CT Humanities for its support in bringing a film festival to Connecticut’s most populated city and proud to partner with them in celebrating artists and engaging with audiences that too often get ignored.”
