Black Indie Filmmaking in the Age of Obama

Despite recent high profile successes, black themed independent films still exist mostly on the margins. In an era of great uncertainty in the indie sphere in general, how are black indie filmmakers specifically coping with the decline of traditional revenue streams, the paucity of black financing partners and the persistent disinterest of their work to foreign audiences, international sales companies and large swaths of the African-American community? Filmmaker Magazine’s Brandon Harris leads this talk with Darius Clark Monroe (EVOLUTION OF A CRIMINAL), Lacey Schwartz (LITTLE WHITE LIE), Moon Molson (THE BRAVEST, THE BOLDEST), and Thomas Allen Harris (THROUGH A LENS DARKLY).

INDIETALKS are sponsored by the Hohenberg Foundation. Free admission after Priority Pass, Festival Pass and Standby Card holders have been seated.
