newportFILM was thrilled to welcome Academy-Award winning director Roger Ross Williams and producer Lisa Cortes to Newport for a screening of The Apollo at Chateau-sur-Mer last night! Big thank you to our event partner, Newport Jazz Presents® and our moderator for the post-film Q&A, jazz legend, Christian McBride, Newport Jazz Festival’s artistic director. Thank you to everyone who joined us on such a beautiful evening and to the Preservation Society of Newport County for hosting us. Photography by Jennifer Manville.
