In the past 14 honorees that served in African American, Latino, multiethnic, and women-centered film communities were awarded $10,000.
In a statement ARRAY Alliance director, Regina Miller, stated, “Establishing ARRAY Grants furthers ARRAY’s mission to support arts advocates around the country that are cultural necessities in their communities. With more content from creators of color and women being made, it’s crucial to support the organizations that nurture and nourish these voices. In just the last few weeks, we’ve all gained a new appreciation for the value of human connection and the simple comfort of being together, sharing stories, in a place that feels safe and welcoming. Every community deserves that”.
