Paradigm Signs Ava DuVernay; Will Represent AFFRM; Plus "Middle Of Nowhere" Release Date

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!
