In addition to the screening, there will also be a panel discussion featuring the Born to Fly cinematographer, Kristen Johnson.

Board of Directors Update

It’s a new year, and we have some exciting changes for our Board of Directors for 2015.

First, we want to send our gratitude to Julie Tolentino, who will be stepping down from the board this year.
 

Tolentino is a dancer and choreographer who creates intimate solo movement-based installations including time-based durational performances, sculptural endurance events and audio soundscapes. Tolentino has served as a committed board member for the last 12 years, and we are sad to see her go.

We would also like to welcome Marques McClary and Vivien Labaton to the Aubin Pictures Board of Directors.  

Marques is currently Director of Marketing and Communications for the American Academy in Rome, which supports innovative artists, writers, and scholars living and working together in a dynamic international community. Marques also has broad experience working within the MSM and HIV patient/advocacy community.  

Vivien Labaton is Co-Founder and Co-Executive Director of Make it Work, a campaign to advance the economic security of women and families. Labaton started her career working with Gloria Steinem and as the founding Director of the Third Wave Foundation and is also the co-editor of The Fire This Time: Young Activists and the New Feminism (Anchor Books).

Finally, with the new year comes a new president, Dána-Ain Davis.

Dána-Ain Davis Ph.D., is on the Faculty in Anthropology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York and is the Associate Chair of the MA Program in Urban Affairs at Queens College. Davis was a founding board member of Aubin Pictures, and we look forward to her continued wisdom and guidance.
