A new film on HBO Max from Catalyst's Head of Programming and an ITV Fest alum!


Uprooted: the Journey of Jazz Dance celebrated its US release this month on HBO Max! From Executive Producer Grady Craig, an ITV Fest alum and Associate Producer Kimberley Browning, also an alum and now Catalyst’s Head of Programming, Uprooted is a feature length documentary on the lineage and future progressions of Jazz Dance. "Uprooted’s creative team believe that this film is essential for the future of dance, and its release will help ensure that the legacy of so many great creative figures gets passed down and not lost. Our film will open the eyes and minds of so many, and ignite new passion and understanding in others – something particularly important in today’s society."
