Ava DuVernay is making history by giving people of color a big opportunity to showcase their film works. Ava opened up a Movie Theater in LA located in the historic Filipinotown. The Amanda Theater is named after her late Aunt. She’s starting off by hosting an Array 360 series featuring Women and people of color. Two films will be by French trailblazer Agnès Varda and a film by John Singleton.

DuVernay shared with the The LA Times the following: “The idea was to be disruptive in every system within which artists, especially artists of color and women, have to work in this industry,” she said. “Every system has roadblocks for people like us, whether it is in the acquisition, production, distribution, exhibition, marketing, crewing up. So what we were looking to do was disrupt those systems so that we create normalcy and momentum.”

The theater campus will also include DuVernay’s for-profit distribution company Array Releasing that she launched nine years ago that helps independent filmmakers release their movies.
