Beetz And Rysdahl Were Fellow Judges 

Beetz and Rysdahl were both on the judging panel for the 2020 72 Hour Film Slam. The duo even announced the second required script element for participants in the competition for young filmmakers.

During the announcement, Rysdahl said he had previously taught at SOCAPA and added it was a privilege to serve as a judge on the 72 Hour Film Slam. The couple then revealed that the required script for the competition was celebrating multiculturalism.

On the same note, both Beetz and Rysdahl have been supportive of multiculturalism, and even joined the protest in Los Angeles following George Floyd’s death.

Rysdahl took to Instagram to talk on the subject, expressing his sadness at the unfortunate death of Floyd.

Maybe this is the tipping point? Maybe we can begin to grow in the future together? We all suffer when there is no justice. We are all connected. I’m not preaching… I’m just heartbroken, trying to figure out how to be a part of the healing.

Aside from joining in to support the BLM movement, Rysdahl has also been very supportive of Beetz’s activism. In fact, almost all of his post on Instagram has been about Beetz and supporting her efforts.
