Harlem Film Lovers Can Be a Part of Sundance Film Festival by Submitting

Thomas Allen HarrisFilm lovers can be a part of the upcoming Sundance Film Festival by submitting their family photos via Instagram, a selection of which will be seen at a special event on Monday, January 20 (MLK, Jr. Day) during the Digital Diaspora Family Reunion (DDFR) Roadshow. The project, a brainchild of award-winning filmmaker and Bronx native Thomas Allen Harris (whose company is based in Harlem), helps turn Joe Public into his family’s documentarian by encouraging people to dig out, learn and tell the history behind their treasured family photos, which will be collected into the One World, One Family photo album.

Harris’s project, modeled on the PBS show “Antiques Roadshow” is a companion to his film “Through a Lens Darkly: Black Photographers and the Emergence of a People,” which will premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.

The DDFR will be a part of the Festival’s New Frontier, and the event, which will bring the local and filmmaking community together to share photos and oral histories, will be held at 6:00 pm at the Gateway (136 Heber Avenue, Park City). It is free and open to the public.
