Grant and Screening for Cabib’s Work

Cintia Cabib has been awarded a Maryland State Arts Council Creativity Grant for her documentary BIRD WALK. The film focuses on the birds and birders who have flocked to RedGate Park in Rockville, Maryland, a former golf course where 170 bird species have been sighted, and on the grassroots campaign to preserve the 131-acre site as a public park. Cintia received a WIFV Seed Fund for Documentary Filmmakers for this film.

On November 9 at 7:00 pm, Cintia will be the guest curator for HumanitiesDC’s Culture Series program at Busboys and Poets, 450 K Street NW. She will screen her documentary KINDRED SPIRITS: Artists Hilda Wilkinson Brown and Lilian Thomas Burwell and moderate a panel discussion with 96-year-old artist Lilian Thomas Burwell, Senior Curator of the Smithsonian Anacostia Community Museum, Samir Meghelli, and mixed-media artist and co-founder of Black Artists of DC, Claudia “Aziza” Gibson-Hunter.
