Event description

Description

Maya Angelou once said, "The truth is, no one of us can be free until everybody is free." Science Fiction tends to believe it is above it all. Yet there is fear, sexism, racism and even hatred in our own house. Let’s shine a light on it.

Holding the flashlights will be:

Paul Salamoff

It's hard to pin down Salamoff to one particular profession. An over twenty-year veteran of the industry, he has found success as a Writer, Producer, Film Executive, Comic Book Creator, Author, and originally as a Special F/X Make-Up Artist. His film, Encounter, is having it's East Coast premiere as part of this year's festival!

Pat Bordenave

Sometimes called “The Golden Smog” Pat’s melodious voice comes from a background in voice acting and music. A jack-of-all-trades from cinema history to amateur lepidoptery and all parts in between, he’s never met a useless fact he didn’t hesitate to spout or a bad joke he wouldn’t make.

Meghann Ackerman

Meghann Ackerman has 34 years of experience being a woman and slightly less than 34 years of experience loving pop culture. By day she is a slightly eccentric communications professional. By night and weekend, she is a voracious consumer of all types of media, with a penchant for awful horror, sci-fi, and fantasy movies.

Andre Green

Andre grew up wanting to be either a Starfleet Captain or a Jedi Knight. Unfortunately his midicholorian count was too low for the Jedi and the Federation won’t be established until 2161, so instead he works in education policy. When not fighting for quality education for all as the Executive Director of FairTest, he can be found noticing the death rate of black people in speculative fiction and using P.A.W. Patrol to teach his daughter about the Patriarchy. A long term resident of Somerville, since 2016 he has served as an elected member of the School Committee representing Ward 4.
