Here's the gist of it...

Taking place as part of the ongoing African Diaspora International Film Festival here in NYC, a panel titled Monetizing Independent Cinema. I believe the title speaks for itself.

The event will take place at Teachers College, Columbia University - The Chapel (175 Zankel Hall), 525 West 120th StreetNew York, NY, beginning at 2PM.

Panelists include: Miton Tabbot, IFP Senior Director, Programming, Maria Breaux (director Mother Country), Eliaichi Kimaro (director A Lot Like You), Benedict A. Dorsey (director The Human Web), Catilin Boyle (President FilmSprout), and Reinaldo B. Spech (President ArtMattan Productions).

    I watched a number of movies in this festival and they all rocked! The diversity of directors, subject matter and geography as well as the depth of the issues portrayed were unparalleled. Its amazing to me that films of such caliber don't stand a chance of making it into the mainstream.

    I hope ADIFF gains more visibility and secures its place on the high table of global film festivals. The organizers should be commended for an outstanding job.

    I, too, am looking for a way to see black independent films. How can those of us at colleges and universities support a tour of these films or a tour of the festival?

    Is there any place online - not bootleg nor pirate downloading - where I can view African films? I like this site. I see a lot about movie premieres, but maybe I missed the links where I can access the films from some vendor like Netflix or something.
