I attended the festival for the very first time this year, and was overwhelmed by the number of films screened; truly one of the largest black film festivals in the world, in terms of volume alone. It was also where films from the likes of comedies like Think Like A Man, to historical dramas like Toussaint L'Ouverture, and several other notable titles, made their USA (and in some cases world) premieres.

This should hopefully appease those DISH customers who have been without AMC since July, as the cold war between the two companies continues - you'll be able to watch the much-anticipated season 3 premiere of the highest-rated scripted drama series on cable TV for its target audiences, as well as among DISH subscribers - The Walking Dead.

It’s not often that a film can leave you in desperate need of a hot (not cold) shower, but director Lee Daniels’ The Paperboy does just that.
