movie news Rob Morgan, Dascha Polanco and Loretta Devine Board Short Films From Lena Waithe-Led AT&T Filmmaker Mentorship Program

EXCLUSIVE: Production for the short films chosen for the AT&T Filmmaker Mentorship Program are underway and Rob Morgan This Is Us, Just Mercy, Dascha Polanco Orange is the New Black, When They See Us and Loretta Devine Grey’s Anatomy, Family Reunion two of the films have joined two of the films.

With Emmy winner Lena Waithe as the lead mentor and  with the support of Waithe’s producing partner Rishi Rajani, AT&T Hello Lab, and Fullscreen, the program discovers, incubates and empowers emerging filmmakers from underrepresented communities to evolve their work, grow their audience and provide national distribution on platforms such as DIRECTV and DIRECTVNOW.

Waithe hand-picked the five shorts from up and coming creators and storytellers. The films represent a range of diverse identities including LGBTQ+, women, communities of color and more. The chosen mentees had access to industry advisors, studio and production company executives, agents and casting directors.  They received advice on pitching, budgets and directing. In addition, the program introduced a unified theme of “growing pains” with all the shorts which allowed the writers and directors freedom to express their unique, individualized perspective. Waithe also expanded the mission and scope of the diversity-driven program to incorporate music by identifying unsigned and underrepresented musicians.
