Hello and Happy Wednesday Stage 32!

WOW. What an endlessly epic few days it has been here at Stage 32. For those of you who may not have heard the news, Stage 32 is screening films affected by the SXSW cancellation (kindly find all the info here). Since the announcement on Monday, support has been constant and ever-growing. So far, we have had over 25 pieces of media coverage published from outlets like VarietyCNN, and more

I know I speak for everyone at Stage 32 when I offer a resounding THANK YOU to all the media outlets that have come together to support independent filmmakers and industry professionals as we navigate these uncharted waters. 

However, what has spoken even more volumes is the amount of support, sharing, and encouragement coming from Stage 32 members and indie filmmakers and supporters from around the globe. I would like to take this time to share with you some of the amazing, beautiful, and downright glorious messages we have received from the community. 

First of all, a special shout out to some of our amazing Stage 32 members supporting, sharing, and commenting on our blog!
