A compilation of student films by Philly-based filmmakers of color, curated by Reelblack at PhilaMOCA 531 N. 12th Street, Philadelphia, PA 19123

EARLY WORK features films by Reelblack Founder Mike D (Philly Boy), Chinonye Chukwu (AlaskaLand), Rel Dowdell (Changing The Game), Tanya Hamilton (Night Catches Us) and Nadine Patterson (Tango Macbeth). All have gone on to make feature films and will be on hand to discuss how film school and short filmmaking proved to be an integral step in their development.

    Yes, Seth Gilliam (The Wire) and Yvonna Kopacz-Wright (Guiding Light) were the stars of my final NYU short film. If you're in Philly I hope you'll come out. Thanks S&A for the love.
