Hot Photos From CultureCon NYC: Netflix’s Interactive Events At The Cultural Homecoming!By The DivaGals | October 11, 2022 | Entertainment, Lifestyle
CultureCon came to NYC this past weekend, and it lit up city! Founded by entertainment executive Imani Ellis and powered by the Creative Collective, CultureCon is the fastest-growing conference for creatives of color, with panels, parties and personal immersive experiences.
Netflix was there to host The Redeem Team screening and Q&A on Oct. 7 and the ENTERGALACTIC CultureCon kick-off party. Guests included Kenya Barris, Maurice Williams, Karina Manashil and DJ Cory Townes. The Redeem Team tells the story of the US Olympic Men’s Basketball Team’s quest for gold at the Olympic Games Beijing 2008 following the previous team’s shocking performance four years earlier in Athens. The documentary offers a fascinating portrait of team building and features insightful interviews with athletes and coaches, from Dwyane Wade and LeBron James to Mike “Coach K” Krzyzewski, who reflect on how The Redeem Team set a new standard for American basketball.
On CultureCon Day, Oct. 08, Netflix hosted a live creator conversation panel for Kid Cudi’s first animation project and visual + 10th studio album ENTERGALACTIC with Kenya Barris, Maurice Williams, and Karina Manashil, moderated by Angie Martinez. ENTERGALACTIC is an original, immersive, animated story about a young artist named Jabari — voiced by Mescudi — as he attempts to balance love and success.
Both projects are now streaming globally on Netflix.
