Denton Black Film Festival Presents 50 Shades of Black - Video Series

 The concept is simple. 50 videos. 50 people. 1 goal : Tell the stories of everyday black people. In a media landscape where the stories of people of color aren’t told often or accurately, the series sets out to tell the stories of black people within the Dallas-Fort Worth community - in their own words. 

Denton Black Film Festival

Films that...Entertain...Educate...InspireThe  2016 Denton Black Film Festival (DBFF) will showcase films that entertain, educate, inspire, and communicate Black American cultural themes to the broader community as expressed through movies and art that reflect cultural mindset and changes through several generations of film-making.  The 2016 Denton Black Film Festival (DBFF) is a month long expo of engaging and entertaining films and events, culminating in a major screening of over 25 award-winning and/or though provoking films January 29-31. The Festival offers programming for the family inspired by the African-American experience.  DBFF seeks to offer the works of local, national and international filmmakers, that often are not seen by a broad audience and may not be recognized through major theatrical release.

The Power of the Badge

    During the festival here in Cannes, there is a whole other world outside of the screenings. However, this world is only accessible to those with a badge. A winding line is always present outside the palais and market but on the first day, my cinephile badge (one that allows me to go to certain film screenings) did not allow me to get in. I soon found out just how many different kinds and levels of badges there were. Black, yellow, blue, white, and others but what really is the ...

Urban Action Showcase

 

 

 

 

The Urban Action Showcase is a 3 day Independent Action Showcase and Film Festival premiering minority filmmakers specifically in the Action Film Genre. Action is the genre of choice of fans and Studios alike when it comes to Summer Blockbusters not to mention 9 out of the top 10 highest grossing films to date all have Action at its core! The Danger, Thrill, and Excitement of the Action genre keeps us all at the edge of our seats from the small screen to the big screen and it would seem that the Action genre has it all accept for one very important factor, Diversity. Without equal opportunity and diversity any positive message can be misconstrued. By focusing on the thrill and excitement of the Action genre and recognizing the need for integration the Urban Action Showcase sets itself apart from other film festivals as the only one of its kind!

With the initiative of social responsibility and ethnic diversity, the Urban Action Showcase advocates minority actors, filmmakers, producers, and industry professionals of the Action film genre through workshops, panel discussion, screenings and events. Through strong networks and sponsorship support the Urban Action Showcase endeavors to encourage major studios to both include and pioneer more ethnically diverse casts and projects in the Action genre for example the Fast and Furious franchise. The Urban Action Showcase will continue to grow meeting and exceeding expectations with the help of our partnering sponsors and Indie Action fans across the nation. The Urban Action Showcase Indie Action Film Festival welcomes film and television Animation and Live Action Shorts and Feature narratives in all aspects of the Action genre.

The Urban Action Showcase is Executive Produced by Action Scene Combat Productions a full service production company pioneering ethnically diverse works in the Action film genre founded in 2000 by Demetrius Angelo the creator of the Urban Action Showcase.

Black International Cinema Berlin / "Footprints in the Sand?" Exhibition

BLACK INTERNATIONAL CINEMA

is a yearly interdisciplinary, intercultural film/video festival produced and directed by Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre / THE COLLEGIUM - Forum & Television Program Berlin in association with Cultural Zephyr e.V. and screens cinema from the African Diaspora and other films from varied intercultural backgrounds or perspectives.

Black International Cinema Berlin originated from the Black Cultural Festival, which was produced and directed by Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre in 1986 for the first time in Europe, a 3-week event in Berlin, which presented the contributions of Black people to world culture through film, theater, dance, music, workshops and seminars, and was an homage to the legendary tap dancer, Carnell Lyons.

The venues were the Theatermanufaktur am Halleschen Ufer from March 3-16, music – dance – theatre; Hochschule der Künste Berlin on March 11, symposium; Kino Arsenal from March 17-23, film.

Organization and Artistic Direction: Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith (USA/Berlin), Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith (USA/Berlin), Donald Muldrow McKinney Griffith II (USA/Berlin), Dr. Ntongela Masilela (South Africa); in cooperation with: Prof. Dr. Abdul Alkalimat (USA), Uazuvara Ewald Katjivena (Namibia), Getinet Belay (Ethiopia), Joliba Africa Center; Organization: Erika Gregor (Arsenal Cinema, Germany); Organization Assistance: Annette Koschmieder (Germany)

Since then, Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre produces and directs the Black International Cinema each year in Berlin and additionally, in other European and US-American cities.

The festival focuses on presenting works of an artistic, cultural or political nature coinciding with the general educational, social, artistic and economic interest of people from Africa, the African Diaspora and people with an interest in participating in intercultural communication and the resultant interfacing and sharing of educational, social, artistic and economic resources.

Furthermore, Black International Cinema is open to ALL filmmakers and contributes to better understanding and increasing cooperation between people from various cultural, ethnic, national and religious backgrounds, in order to reduce prejudice and support a peaceful and respectful living together in our multi-faceted societies.  

Black International Cinema is a festival based upon our mission statement and the objectives and methods as stated within the entry form.

MAGDAS LESBIAN LOVE (MLL)

Director: WILL MOORE.

MAGDAS LESBIAN LOVE ( MLL ) is  Christian Lesbian short film starring SABRINA CHIMEKA and KATARINA played by SELMA GLASELL

MIN MAMMA ALSKAR LESBISKA ( MUMS LESBIAN LOVER) a.k.a MLL

#
Director: WILL MOORE.

Min Mamma alska lesbiska or Mums lesbian lover ( MLL ) is an alternate love story between   two women   MAGDA played by SABRINA CHIMEKA  and KATARINA played by SELMA GLASELL whose relationship started when they were at boarding school. Unfortunately for the pair MAGDA was expelled for smoking before their relationship could be fully developed and its not until years later at a chance meeting between the two in Sweden.  MAGDA who is now a born again Christian Film making lecturer is invited on a break to Sweden by a church friend Michelle played by KETORAH WILLIAMS  that it is realised.

Filmed on location in England the film is in both English and in Swedish.

The Film challenges discrimination and the need for rights to be carried out , from Copyright rights , black civil rights , gender rights and lastly gay rights.  It presents the truth and reality of racism even amongst the wealth y and well to do where MAGDA the black lead is not accepted by her peers at the boarding school despite the financial clout being reached by MAGDAs parents.  This reality is further displayed even in the gay and lesbian relationship where KATARINA – MAGDAs love interest decides that it is best not to further develop the relations hip . It further presents conventional views on held by the church on gay and lesbian relationship whilst challenging that view with a twist

PARK IT RIGHT

Director: Donny Kingsley Okoh.
Being a Migrant worker and student with an accent in the UK is a big problem for Chris and his colleagues and they embark on a mission to uplift the image of traffic wardens and are determined to go extra miles. Albeit the daily difficulties inherent in being a traffic warden, Chris, Emeka, Sanjay, Everton, Heather, Colin and Lucy utilize all their skills to show the public that their temporary career path do not define who they are and that whenever people see them, they should not get scared that they will be fined for not packing properly rather; they should be ready to be entertained by their wits and dancing capabilities. Their quest to help change the views of the public about traffic wardens and gain acceptability is dealt a heavy blow when Colin falls in love with a fellow student (Jade). In his “never say never” attitude, Colin decides to sing to her about his undying love in front of the whole class and in turn, makes himself and his colleagues a laughing stock.

Ham & The Piper complete

user
It's beena tremendous effort to finally finish Ham & The Piper. The film is magnificent and looks beautiful, thanks to the work of young Polish cinemtagrapher, Bartlomiej Sienkiewicz, a real talent for one so young. The music is wonderful too and the performances.... out of this world, especially Jeffery Kissoon in the lead. We've had some interest which is great before we head off into the festival circuit.   Check the film out on http://www.wix.com/hamandthepiper/movie ...
