At DCFF, we aim to engage our community and ignite conversations that extend beyond the world of film. This year, in partnership with SHARE, Pongo Poetry Project, and Underground Writing, DCFF is honored a host to screening of the short film IN BETWEEN. The event will also feature poetry readings and a panel conversation by community members involved in programs that support King and Pierce counties’ incarcerated and other underserved communities.
Panelists include Chanel Rhymes, Director of Advocacy at Northwest Community Bail Fund, Felice Upton (Davis) – Assistant Secretary for Juvenile Rehabilitation for WA Department of Children, Youth and Families and Pongo Poetry Project board members.
In addition to our in-person event, IN BETWEEN will be available to stream for free on our virtual cinema platform here. Written by a student in the Screenwriting Program at the Washington Corrections Center for Women, IN BETWEEN (directed by Lindy Boustedt) is based on a true story. Through the lens of a what-if.
It’s the late-1980s and Lisa, a biracial teenager having just moved to Seattle from London, is forced into a new world when she is segregated to a different school from her white sister. But when she meets a welcoming student at orientation, everything changes.
