Board of Directors Update

We would like to send our gratitude to Julie Tolentino, who has served as a committed board member for the last 12 years. As she steps down from the board this year, we send our love and thanks for her years of dedicated service. 


We would also like to WELCOME Marques McClary and Vivien Labaton to the Aubin Pictures Board of Directors. Meet our two new board members here.


Finally, with the new year comes a new board PRESIDENT, Dána-Ain Davis. Davis was a founding board member of Aubin Pictures, and we look forward to her continued wisdom and guidance! 

Meet Brette! Our new office assistant.

Look who just joined our team. 

Brette is a recent graduate of Brown University, where she majored in Modern Culture and Media (just like Catherine). She's originally from Portland, Oregon and spent the last year in Bangladesh working at a women's university. 

2 New Awesome Projects We're Sponsoring
Aubin Pictures is proud to partner with two new exciting projects. 

One with Farai is a deep-dive interview podcast hosted by Farai Chideya. Check out her unique and vital second season here

Lani Ka'ahumanu continues to take on bisexual history! Along with digitizing bisexual archival video, Lani is writing her activist's memoir, MY GRASSROOTS ARE SHOWING

A couple things we love...

Jacqueline Woodson's groundbreaking memoir, Brown Girl Dreaming, is vivid poetry about growing up between Greenville, South Carolina and Bushwick, New York in the midst of the Civil Rights Era. When reading this National Book Award winner, you can feel the roots and the branches growing right out of each page, fast like bamboo, deep like wild fig. 

Woodson is one of Catherine's oldest artistic collaborators/co-conspirators and we all thank her for sharing her words with the world.  

Indie Caucus is a collective of independent media producers. When Indie Caucus heard that WNET would no longer be broadcasting independent documentaries (including BORN TO FLY) in primetime, they sprang to action. Indie Caucus organized our community to remind PBS and WNET that presenting diverse and underrepresented voices is the mandate for public television. 

Because of the Caucus' hard work, PBS has returned to its original scheduling and is developing a national strategy to raise the profile for independent film on public television.

And don't forget to catch BORN TO FLY on PBS on May 11th.
