Thanks to Manny Danelon, Michelle Taddei and Susan Saranchuk for coordinating the event. Also thanks to Marcus Valentin and Alex D’Avolio at Sim Post for assembling this edit, and Andrew M. Richardson for coordinating the video capture of the event.

Jeremy Benning csc and Mikael had worked together over the last couple of years on projects (The Expanse & The Long Road Home) as cinematographer/director respectively, which lead to the idea of having this screening hosted by the CSC and generously sponsored by many industry companies.
