UPDATE: This was originally scheduled for tonight, but it's been moved to Monday night instead.

#######################################################################################

With the film festival celebrating its 20th year when it runs next month, I'll be interviewing, not only the festival's director and co-founder, Ayuko Babu, but I'll also chat with a few of the filmmakers whose features are scheduled to screen there.

These conversations will happen over the next 3 or so weeks, leading up to the festival.

First up is Russ Parr; his next film, The Under Shepherd (which stars Isaiah Washington and an all-around impressive cast) which has been profiled on S&A and was met with lots of debate, will make its world premiere at the Pan African Film Festival next month, and in anticipation of that, Russ will be joining me tomorrow, Thursday night at 8pm EST (5pm PST) to not only talk about The Under Shepherd, but also a variety of black cinema-related subjects, and his experiences in the industry overall.

So, tune in live via Blog Talk Radio (HERE), and feel free to submit any questions you might have for Russ in the comments section below.

    Can u ask Mr. Parr how does he hope his films affect or entertain his audience? Meaning what type of legacy does he want to be known for since he explores many types of genres of film (i.e) comedy, drama, etc? We know Tyler Perry makes comedies We know Spike makes socially conscience movies, to George Lucas' action films... What does he hope to accomplish for his audience?
