Avril Speaks

Avril is an artist and a scholar from New Jersey by way of Atlanta, GA. As a film producer and director, her artistic work focuses on people and institutions that comprise a community--the women, the men, children, the extended family, the school, the church, etc.—and the various ways in which those relationships shape humanity. Avril loves watching diverse films that spark dialogue and reflection, and serving on the Programming Team allows her to do just that. Currently based in LA, Avril holds two master’s degrees and is a professor at University of La Verne. For more information, visit http://www.azuspeak.com.
