The Blackhouse Foundation is a six-year-old organization that works to “expand opportunities for Black filmmakers by providing a physical gathering venue for our constituents at the world’s most prominent film festivals, encouraging the inclusion of black filmmakers with films selected by the festival and creating a nucleus for continuing support, community, education and knowledge.”
At the 2012 Los Angeles Film Festival kicking off this week, Blackhouse will present a full weekend of programming including panels, networking, sponsored screenings, and a brunch in celebration of black documentary film.
Event highlights include Saturday's agent panel featuring representatives of WME, CAA, ICM and Generate, moderated by Franklin Leonard (The Blacklist, Overbrook Entertainment); sponsored screenings of LUV and The Iran Job; and in-depth discussions and panels featuring producer Datari Turner, director Ava DuVernay, Sundance senior programmer Shari Frilot, cinematographer Bradford Young, and others.
