Caliber told MPA that the filmmaking project is a way to support local artists, whose livelihoods have been affected by pandemic-related closures and social distancing.
“The creative community has been hit hard by the ongoing public health crisis,” the lender said. “Concerts, concerts, film festivals, among other events, have all been canceled or postponed. Caliber is proud to be able to support local artists and showcase their talents amid the COVID-19 pandemic. “
