Philly-based film production/promotions company Reelblack, has launched a fundraising campaign via Indiegogo to produce Black Film Now, the first feature-length documentary on African-American cinema in a decade.
The goal is to raise $25,000 before March 10 to cover production costs.
“More Black films have been made in the past 20 years than in the entire history of cinema before it, yet there hasn’t been a decent book or documentary on the subject in over a decade,” explains Founder Michael Dennis (aka Mike D). “We have footage and access. We don’t have to wait another ten years for Ken Burns to tell this story.”
