What is Beyond The Screen?
MIHI x A24 are proud to announce Beyond the Screen, a three-week immersive series for young women and non-binary people of color, ages 18-25.
Beyond The Screen is an extension of our mission to change the narrative through the gaze of those who matter. We honor ourselves by forging new pathways and living beyond our fears.

SESSION 1: The Business of Production
| 06.04.2022 @ 10am - 1:45pm PST
In this session, you will learn about the various factors that make up a film’s budget; how a studio balances a filmmaker’s vision with production costs, how to approach your own film budget, and how to advocate for more inclusive sets.
SESSION 2: The Business of Post-Production | 06.11.2022 @ 10am - 1:45pm PST
From sound and music to color and visual effects, post-production can make or break a film. Learn how the post-production process balances creative considerations with financial ones, then practice identifying a script’s post-production needs for yourself.
SESSION 3: The Business of Distribution
| 06.21.2022 @ 1:30pm - 4pm PST
From marketing stunts to theatrical exhibition, learn how distributors work to “find the voice” of a project and get it seen. Plus, learn the journey and lifestyle of those who work on the distribution side and how you can get started, too.
