ArtServe Live Virtual Event—“Filmmaker Feature” with Bryan G. Thompson
Sponsored by WLRN, ArtServe Live will host a virtual chat with award-winning filmmaker, international business executive and U.S. Army Veteran Bryan G. Thompson.
Thompson founded his production company Imani Films in 2012. His first production exposed audiences to the often misunderstood “wet-foot-dry-foot” law, a former U.S. immigration policy that stated that anyone who fled Cuba and entered the United States would be allowed to pursue residency a year later.
The film, “Noventa,” is an award-winning story about Cubans with conflicting opinions about how to execute a dangerous plan to escape the Communist island country. “Noventa” won Audience Choice in Film Miami Fest 2015, Best Actress (Margarita Romero) in Film Miami Fest 2015, Best Short Film in the Miami Independent Film Festival 2015, and Official Selection at the 2016 Hollywood FL Film Festival.
Thompson also founded Florida’s first International Film Festival for a Web Series, also known as the Miami Web Series Festival or Miami WebFest. The exposure from this event has contributed to the success of several independently produced web series that subsequently secured distribution with Netflix, Vivendi and other prominent networks.
Thompson was awarded the key to the City of Miami in 2017 for his contributions to the city’s artistic and veteran communities.
