About the speaker
Enjoli Moon is the founder and creative director of the Afrikana Independent Film Festival, a festival dedicated to showcasing the cinematic works of people of color from around the world - they place a special focus of the global Black narrative.
She is also the Assistant Curator of Film & Special Programs at the Institute for Contemporary Art at VCU where she is dedicated to using film as a catalyst for conversation and authentic connection. Through Afrikana and the ICA she looks forward to helping grow the footprint of Black indie cinema in Richmond and making the city a premier platform for elevating, celebrating, and further validating stories of the marginalized and underrepresented.
Outside of film, Enjoli serves on the Board of Directors for Oakwood Arts/P35 and 1708 Gallery, as well as the advisory board for the School of African American Studies at VCU. She is a member of the Public Awareness Committee at The Valentine and serves as chair of the Richmond Region Tourism BLK RVA initiative.
Enjoli is the recipient of Style Weekly’s 2017 40 Under 40 and was named a 2018 Women in the Arts by the same organization. Enjoli is a Richmond native and studied sociology at Virginia Commonwealth University and when she’s not out scouting for the next dope film, you’ll find her indulging in RVA’s best eateries or its theater scene with her son, Jonah, an aspiring artist himself.
Helping to build strong and healthy communities benefits us all. We apply the same principles of innovation, collaboration and empowerment to our work in the community that we do in our business.
Worth Higgins & Associates
Just as we did when our company was founded in 1970, we continue to call ourselves “printers” – and so do our customers. Makes sense. Offset, digital, wide-format, and letterpress printing are today the core technologies of Worth Higgins & Associates. UV ink and coating, foil stamping, embossing and die cutting are tools of the printing process that we handle extraordinarily well in helping our clients achieve their creative goals and take their ideas beyond their imaginations.
The Martin Agency
Consider cultural impact as The Martin Agency’s modus operandi. When Jimmy Kimmel, Ellen DeGeneres and Stephen Colbert spontaneously start talking about our clients…when our clients are a Jeopardy! clue and Wheel of Fortune reveal…when SNL parodies our man in a lady wig…we consider it both a good day and all in a day’s work. And maybe a Hump Day, too. A full-service advertising agency with a goal of not just making our clients seen – but making them culturally relevant, Martin has created steady buzz around GEICO, OREO, UPS, Donate Life and Walmart, to name a few. And we’ve been doing it as far back as 1969 when we penned Virginia is for Lovers. People still wonder, What can Brown do for you? Work that leverages culture, wakes people up, fights invisibility, and gets talked about – it’s what we do, and we’ve done it for 53 years.
