Black Reel Awards

posted by Nell Minow

One of the awards announcements I most look forward to each year is the selections of the Black Reel Awards, given out by the Foundation for the Advancement of African-Americans in Film, a nonprofit organization with a mission to target, identify and prepare candidates who will represent the next generation of filmmakers and potential film executives that will be able to provide a different sensibility to the stories currently told onscreen. I am so pleased to see this acknowledgment of some of the best film-makers and performers in movies today and honored to have been one of the judges.

    does this awards or foundation have a website?
    do they have a ceremony for this award show?

    This year’s winners are on the filmgordon blog. They do not have a ceremony; I hope someday they become big enough to have one as it would really be thrilling to watch.
    Thanks for writing!
