Shadow and Act is pleased to exclusively debut the photos from the Blackhouse Foundation’s Portrait Studio from the 2022 Sundance Film Festival. Shadow and Act last debuted photos for the studio, from photography Erik Umphery, in 2020 after the last in-person Sundance Film Festival. This is the second time that the Blackhouse Foundation has done a virtual portrait studio amid the pandemic.

The Blackhouse Foundation is one of the organizations providing a safe space and haven for Black talent, filmmakers, press and moviegoers during their Sundance experience. It’s a time and place to grab breakfast, hang out, network, turn up and much more. According to the organization, “The Blackhouse Foundation stands out as a bastion for the most influential and impactful Black writers, directors, producers, crew, actors and actresses throughout film, television, digital media and beyond. It continues to elevate such talent into the spotlight on a global scale via engagements at Sundance.”
