Judges Beetz and Rysdahl were friends
Both Beetz and Rysdahl were on the 2020 72 Hour Film Slam judging panel. The team also revealed the second mandatory script element for young filmmakers competing in the competition.
During the announcement, Rysdahl mentioned that he had previously taught at SOCAPA and that serving as a judge on the 72 Hour Film Slam was an honour. The duo then disclosed that the competition’s necessary script celebrated multiculturalism. Similarly, both Beetz and Rysdahl have been proponents of multiculturalism, and even participated in the Los Angeles demonstration following George Floyd’s death. Rysdahl addressed the issue on Instagram, expressing his regret over Floyd’s untimely death.
Could this be the turning point? Maybe we can start growing together in the future? When there is no justice, we all suffer. We are all linked in some way. I’m not trying to convert you… I’m just heartbroken and trying to figure out how I can help with the healing process.
Apart from joining the BLM movement, Rysdahl has been a strong supporter of Beetz’s activities. In fact, practically all of his Instagram posts have been about Beetz and his support for her.
