The MACRO Lounge is returning to the Sundance Film Festival this year and is bringing a premiere and heavy-hitting panels.

BET’s upcoming Boomerang series from Lena Waithe will screen during the first weekend. A panel will take place featuring Waithe, as well as Boomerang showrunner Ben Cory Jones and director Dime Davis. There will also be a fireside chat with Jada Pinkett Smith and an appearance from Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for the premiere of the documentary, Knock the House Down.
