Our Response to COVID-19

Update on 2021 Programming


As we continue to monitor and assess COVID-19 safety protocols, the Delta variant, and social distancing guidelines, the AITAF team is committed to providing the safest and most impactful arts programming for our military community.

AITAF is proud to have pivoted swiftly to virtual programming in May 2020, and has since produced 15 virtual film screening events for our military audience. If you missed them, you can hear the conversations by listening to the AITAF After-Show limited podcast series!

We also awarded our first Bridge Award for Screenwriting winner, launched a virtual writing workshop with Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Paula Vogel, and will be accepting submissions to our 4th annual Bridge Award for Playwriting this December.

As we look to 2022, we remain steadfast in our belief that the arts can inspire hope, improve quality of life, and bridge the divide between two communities, particularly through live programming. By adhering to the most up-to-date COVID safety guidelines, we are planning on carefully presenting live events with our military partners in the months and year to come.

Our event request form also remains live, and we are prioritizing opportunities to perform with military installations who have strong leadership support of these events.

The staff will begin working a hybrid schedule of remote and in-person. Proof of vaccination is required for entry into our Brooklyn office.

We are incredibly grateful to our generous community of donors and supporters. It is because of you that we remain active, continuing to connect with our community as much as possible. We cannot do this alone, and every dollar counts to help us get back to our core mission of in-person events. Donate here.

It is our hope that our programming can continue to offer connection and insight, boosting morale in moments of isolation and uncertainty, and we look forward to keeping you updated as we do so.
