Working to make the DC premiere of Restless City a huge sold out event. Big ups to Brad Young. I knew him when he was learning the craft. HU!

I am very inspired by this movement. The next step is to expand this model across Europe where there are many Pan African Film Festivals.

AFFRM affirms that there is a market for more independent films on a theatrical level. I'm glad that I found you all. I have "I Will Follow" and it was pleasant to watch. I'll be looking for "Kinyarwanda" and "Middle of Nowhere". Hoping that "Restless City" will screen here in Houston as well. Forward screening info and I'll send it to my outlets.
---Only watch a bootleg if you plan to make a purchase!
Tieuel Legacy! in Motion

First, I want to pay homage and say job well done. As an African American film student it is important to see such an organization like AAFM. In the early 70's the major studios were making black exploitation films that depict us as everything, but positive. Most of our actors had really no choice but to take acting jobs in these films. Currently we have a plethora of black film organization net working to bring quality stories to the screen. WB Dubois wrote about 10 percent will be talented. Well considering the fact that the world has changed since then. The percentage is now greater which horns some type of artistic creativity. All African American film makers, visual artists, singers, actors, dancers, writers, producers, and directors should involve themselves in a project such as this. Many facets of our Black Art institutions disseminate because lack of knowledge or funding. That's why it is paramount to preserve all of our creative projects. The AAFM should be like a cancer and spread to all urban areas where there is a cauldron of talent. However, I now that all movements need support because African American films are given smaller screen ratios than mainstream films. This is because of the constraints on revenue and resources which make our market smaller. However by creating such a hub like AAFM it can take Black cinema to a new level. I Agree with Julie Dash, don't think domestic, but think global because the world has developed an appetite for our Art. Black film makers have so many stories to tell and the sharing of experiences sparks new projects. This type of dialogue will broaden Black Independent Cinema horizons and our body of work set standards for all artist of color to be global. This movement also reminded me of the Harlem Renaissance era when all artists of all genres, had a meeting place and fellowship. I

AFFRM is still a secret weapon, with the development of this website and other endeavors, I hope that in a few years that it'll be a well-known weapon in the artillery, with plenty of ammunition

PEACE, LOVE AND ADMISSIONS. Screen Nation supports you and your new site looks fly!! We hope that one day soon our little film The MIrror Boy will grace your screens.

Dearest Ava and Team,
Just checked in to the new site and I love it! I know that you and I didn't get the opportunity to work together initially, but I see it as timing is everything. Here I come - ready to volunteer! *Rolls up sleeves*
Best to you Sis!
