Certainly no stranger to this site, and black cinema in general, Ms Ava DuVernay has been signed by the Paradigm agency, who will also represent DuVernay’s distribution company, African American Film Festival Releasing Movement (AFFRM).

Ava's second narrative fiction feature (Middle Of Nowhere) was acquired jointly by Participant Media and AFFRM, and now has an official theatrical release date of October 12.

As THR notes, Paradigm repped the film's sale during the festival.

And AFFRM's third release Andrew Dosunmu's Sundance 2011 selection Restless City, will be released beginning April 27th.

Congrats Ava!

    I'll take some of what she's having! Good Gawd, this sistah is on a roll. Hubby and I met her at PAFF and she was very open and nice to us. You never know how these people are going to be when you meet them. Good lady. Congrats Ms DuVernay!
