Cable TV Stations Honor African American Filmmakers 1/19/05

The cable TV stations, HBO (Home Box Office) and Black STARZ!, are both honoring African American filmmakers in unique ways this year.

HBO will hold its 8th Annual Short Film Award competition in Miami on July 13-17. The competition will be part of the
Annual American Black Film Festival (ABFF) and will award black screenwriters and directors for outstanding short films that are thirty minutes or less.

African American filmmakers who are 18 years of age or older can enter the competition and must submit their films for consideration by April 8, 2005.

On February 13, 2005, Black STARZ!, a cable TV station from
Starz Entertainment Group LLC, will show the documentary Unstoppable, which profiles the lives of the first African Americans to direct Hollywood feature films. Among these directors are Melvin Van Peebles (Sweet Sweetbacks' Baadasssss Song, Classified X), Gordon Parks (The Learning Tree, Shaft), and Ossie Davis (Cotton Comes to Harlem).
