MPI senior vice president Lana Link will be joined on stage by Kemba Smith, the subject and executive producer of Kemba; Kelley Kali, the director of Kemba; and Austin and Meredith Bragg, the writing and directing team behind Pinball.

The panel will be held Sunday, January 21, at The Box at The Ray. Entry to this event is on a first come, first serve basis. Visit the Sundance program guide here to learn more!
