Entertainers have come up with creative ways to raise money while the public self-quarantines, such as The Comedy Store’s celebrity-filled Livestream.
Yesterday, filmmakers turned to Twitter for the Array Film Foundation Tweet-A-Thon to support unique voices in independent cinema. Notable industry creators confirmed to partake in the event include Best Picture-winning director Guillermo Del Toro, Aurora Guerrero (Gentefied), John Chu (Crazy Rich Asians), Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman), Lulu Wang (The Farewell), Alma Har’el (Honey Boy), Terence Nance (An Oversimplification of Her Beauty) and many others!
