New Voices in Black Cinema Festival

Loeb & Loeb LLP is pleased to announce that Jessica B. Lee will moderate a panel titled "The Wild West 2.0: Creating, Crowdfunding, and Capturing an Audience for your Content Online" at the ActNow Foundation's 3rd Annual New Voices in Black Cinema Festival.

From the festival website:

New Voices in Black Cinema Festival is a multi-genre film showcase aimed at showcasing and increasing appreciation for independent cinema from and about people of the African diaspora. Whether the films are contemporary or period pieces, drama or comedy, science fiction or animated, the further purpose of this series is to give filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their talent on a grand scale, where they can develop opportunities for distribution and create buzz for future industry contacts. Held annually in February, this program is all about choosing excellence over spectacle and daring stories over standard fare. NVBC explores the shades and nuances of society, and provides exhibition to emerging voices that represent these rich and diverse cultures proudly, putting them on display to the masses.
