Liquid Media Group Held An Exclusive Sneak Peek Screening Of iNDIEFLIX’s New Film “RACE To Be Human” At SXSW This Month

iNDIEFLIX

The annual SXSW festival took place recently in Austin, celebrating a convergence of tech, film and music industries. It was the first in-person SXSW event in two years, and will run until this Sunday, March 20.

Liquid Media Group company iNDIEFLIX, a global subscription video on-demand streaming service focused on content with a purpose, successfully delivered a global sneak peek of its groundbreaking new film RACE to Be Human, with a virtual screening event at SXSW Interactive. The screening began on Friday, March 11, and successfully ran for a week.

RACE to Be Human was available exclusively on Eluvio LIVE for the sneak peak, and was the second successful blockchain streaming event this year. The film is an iNDIEFLIX Original documentary exploring the impact of race and racism on our mental health and how we can collectively honor dignity and pursue belonging in our communities. The film weaves together personal stories through the lens of students and parents, with perspectives and data from educators, mental health professionals, and diversity and inclusion experts.

Appropriate for ages 10 and up, the film is meant to open discussions in the classroom, the workplace and at home, promoting healing, empathy and compassion.

“I wanted to make a film that addressed the confusion and apprehension we often feel when talking about race and racism,” said Scilla Andreen, Director, Filmmaker, Author, CEO and Co-Founder of iNDIEFLIX. “Race to Be Human illustrates the impact that courageous conversations about race and racism can have on ourselves and our communities when we approach them with curiosity, self-reflection, and empathy.”

Countless positive reviews for RACE to Be Human have been pouring in. “Powerful film. From start to finish, this film had me thinking about myself, my students, my S.O., and my children. It had me thinking about the past, the present, and the future of society,” shared a counselor from the American School Counselor Association.

In addition to the RACE to Be Human screening at SXSW, Andreen participated in a series of panels, including the Blockchain Creative Labs, where she and others explored entrepreneurship in Web3 and how women within this space are leading through innovation. This panel also included Melody Hildebrandt (President of Blockchain Creative Labs), Anjali Young (CCO of Collab.Land), Shelley Zalis (CEO of The Female Quotient), and Rachel Wolfson (Author and Senior Reporter for Cointelegraph).
