1. Straight To DVD Highlight of April

    DF

    First of all, I would like to thank everyone who supports this website and continues to give it daily traffic for new updates and stories. I am working very hard to research the latest happenings in the Entertainment Industry, as far as filmmaking and television developments unfold. However, sometimes its hard to find good quality black films and I always wonder why that is!

    A lot of romantic comedies like my highlight for today, seem to make its way on to exhibition mode (DVD) rather than the big screen. Unfortunately, in a business which is all about money with a capital M its extremely difficult to get films into distribution. Films that make it to the theater have already accumulated even more debt than the entire production itself, and marketing is just as big of a deal as the Filmmaking process is these days!

  8. 2011 Hollywood Black Film Festival is Weeks Away.. Will You Be There?

    hnffGood Morning to all the people reading this on Tumblr and around the Net, I wanted to bring to attention the upcoming Los Angeles Black Film Festival that takes place the weekend of October 27th- October 30th. It will be an event for people wanting to get more information on how to write scripts, sell scripts, pitch ideas, and collaborate with other entertainers and business personal in the Film industry. As large and exclusive this business is, it is important for us young people to have first hand experience from the people who know what its like to endure extreme challenges and fight for their representation. This 2011 Los Angeles Black Film Festival is one of the largest that represents black film and brings out the most involved and well-connected in the business. Although, the prices for the events are steep for those of us who are running short on change, it is also a grand learning experience and way to get your foot in the door as a forerunner in Hollywood.
