I had the pleasure of meeting Russ Parr, the big winner at the 2012 American Black Film Festival this weekend. His film The Undershepherd won Best Director and Best Narrative; official winners will be announced later.

Parr talked about the The Undershepherd's festival's reception and hopes for distribution. He says he's gotten a couple of offers, but has received some push back from distributors due to the film's controversial nature.

Tambay posted his initial reactions to the film after its premiere at the Pan African Film Festival (read it HERE).

He also talks about his next project, a romantic dramedy titled Definitely Divorcing.

Thanks to the Mr. Parr for interview!

Watch the video below; by the way, the filmmaker is quite funny and clever :):

    thanks for the coverage Shadow & Act. Try to get alone time next time with the filmmakers so you can have better sound. I'm sure publicists would be eager to sit down with you in a quiet place :)
    i feel like I'm there and I didnt even buy tickets. Thanks again.
