"Our aim is to connect diverse people and communities through film and creative media."
- Montré Aza Missouri, Founder
Parallel Film Collective is an organization dedicated to promoting global images that transcend limiting racial, cultural and gender identities found in mainstream media. We partner with individuals and organizations equally committed to furthering innovative and diverse voices, in our effort to produce, distribute and exhibit independent film and media that elevate new transcultural identities.
What We Do
We present dynamic films and arts programming to local audiences including the recent ABOVE THE LINE at Landmark Atlantic Plumbing Cinema featuring Exclusive Premieres and Discussion with Filmmaker Arthur Jafa. Working with outstanding global filmmakers and local arts and film venues, Parallel Film Collective has quickly gained a reputation for presenting innovative film and creative media programs. This quality in programming is because we are filmmakers and arts practitioners who seek to create an inclusive space for collaboration among diverse artists and communities. With this goal, our first Parallel production DJ's, DANCE & DEITIES explores the intersection of music, dance, spiritualities and diverse communities.
