A Quick Shadow and Act Status Update…

A Quick Shadow and Act Status Update...

Hey everyone!

Just a quick update to let you know that, as this will be our last week on Indiewire, I’m currently working to temporarily park the Shadow and Act blog at a new location, while I continue to explore available options. I received a ton of feedback and support after my announcement 3 weeks ago on the site’s potential future, which I’m incredibly grateful for, with many offering suggestions on how the site can continue to exist and thrive post-Indiewire. And so I’ve been considering the most viable options, researching thoroughly the pros and cons of each, so that I can make a well-informed decision on what comes next. And that’s taking some time to properly sort through.

So starting sometime next week, Shadow and Act will have a new, albeit temporary home, which will give me a little more necessary time to do the work required to reach a conclusion based on what’s currently in front of me. But within the next month, I will know with certainty what comes next, and will make a formal announcement at that time which will be permanent.

In the meantime, operations will continue as usual.

For the rest of this week, however, content won’t be published as frequently as it typically is, because I’m busy working to set up the site at its new/temporary location. That’s just an FYI for when you come to the site at any particular time during the day, and find that not much has been published since the last time you visited.

Once the new/temporary location has been set up, you will most certainly know how to reach it.

Thanks for your patience!

For those just joining us, who have absolutely no idea what all this is about, you can catch up on all the details here.

Definitely keep us posted on your new home. This site has been so informative. I really look forward to reading it!


Thank you for providing a vital space for filmmakers and other visual artists across the diaspora. I sincerely hope that you can continue your efforts to highlight the work of under-represented creatives. Best wishes as you convert this challenge into an opportunity to better build the brand.


Thank you for the update. When you make the move, so will I- nothing else on Indiewire truly interests me.


Keep doing quality work and you will always have an audience…most of internet, tv, etc. is junk so maintain your mission


Much support, and thank you.

Thank you. I need this in my life. One of the best sites ever!!!


Tambay, i feel both proud & sad of the potential demise of Shadow & Act why? b/c it has been a creative safe haven and epoch for film avatars (for me anyway;-).So whatever you decide to do, know that i’m down with you in those itchy ashes! and riding shot gun with you on its rise again!
