William + Louise Greaves Filmmaker Seminar | March 16-18, 2023
All seminar programming will take place within a 0.5 mile radius on Drexel’s University City campus. The area is mostly flat and connected by sidewalks with curb cuts at intersections.
All Drexel facilities, including restrooms, are ADA-compliant and wheelchair accessible.
Closed captioning will be provided for all films. Language access services can be arranged upon request.
Email [email protected] with any questions or concerns about accessibility.
You will need to display your Eventive QR code to scan into every seminar program. Find it by logging in directly here or by clicking on your profile in the upper right corner at watch.blackstarfest.org and selecting “Account Settings” and then “My Passes.” We suggest you take a screenshot as well for quick reference throughout the weekend.
Select film programs and supplemental films will be available on the watch platform starting Friday, March 10, through the end of the seminar. You will have a 24-hour window to watch these programs once you “unlock” them. All times are in Eastern Daylight Time (EDT).
If you have not previously used Eventive you will need to create an account in order to access the aforementioned films. The email address for this account must match the email used to purchase a pass for the seminar, in order to access seminar films. Click “Login” in the top right corner of the watch page to begin.
We have opened a Slack workspace during the seminar where you can share ideas, reach out for technical support, and connect with other attendees. We encourage you to take advantage of this platform throughout the weekend – it is open now and will close shortly after the seminar ends. We will send program updates, changes, and reminders via email as well as on Slack.
Other Things to Do Around Philly:
If you have extra time, we recommend checking out these exhibitions:

We strongly recommend attendees to be fully vaccinated at least two weeks prior to attending the seminar. During the seminar, masks will be required in all indoor spaces—including in screenings—except for when eating or drinking.
Please keep the following in mind when masking during the seminar:
KN95 or N95 masks are the most effective masks to prevent COVID-19, followed by medical grade masks covered by cloth masks (“double masking”). Face shields do not provide enough protection to exempt mask requirements but are optional to wear in addition to a KN95/N95 or double-mask. Please note that you should not layer a mask over a KN95/N95 mask.
If you feel sick or are exhibiting signs of a communicable illness (like COVID-19 or the flu), please stay home.
