Meet Kristy Choi, Genie Deez, Adham Elnashai, Candace Ho, Desmond Levi Jackson, Halima Lucas, Wesley Rodriguez, Diante Singley, Kyle Sykes and Milky Tran, the fellows of the 2022 Deutsche Bank Frieze Los Angeles Film Award as they reflect on their experience with the four-month program at GFS and creating films answering to the brief ‘Facing Change’.

Hear from Mary Findlay, International Curator at Deutsche Bank as she looks back on three years of collaboration with Endeavor Content, Ghetto Film School and Frieze. Listen to Sharese Bullock-Bailey (Chief Strategy & Partnership Office, Ghetto Film School) speak about her opportunity of being a juror for this cohort of fellows. Join in the celebration of this year’s recipients Diante Singley and Adham Elnashai as they are announced winners during a ceremony at Frieze Los Angeles 2022.

Diante Singley was awarded the $10,000 prize by a jury of art and entertainment industry figures including Christine Y. Kim, Britton Family Curator-at-Large for North America at London’s Tate Modern; filmmaker Julius Onah; and artist Kehinde Wiley; alongside Head of International Private Bank, CEO EMEA, Deutsche Bank Claudio de Sanctis and Ghetto Film School’s Chief Strategy and Partnership Officer, Sharese Bullock-Bailey. Singley’s film Greyhound focuses on a young man who prepares to depart from his home and community before his freshman year of college.

Raised in Cairo and based in Los Angeles, Adham Elnashai was awarded the initiative’s second Audience Award for his film Rahma. The subject of his film is a young Egyptian woman who struggles with the conservative lifestyle and expectations of her father after moving to Los Angeles, exploring tensions between respective cultural, social and religious values.
