The Black Movie Awards Is Coming Back!


We just discovered that the Black Movie Awards is about to make a come back with a launch date set in October 2011!

Last night, while attending the Short Cuts Film Festival, we ran into Jeff Friday who is the Founder of Film Life Inc. as he revealed to us his plans.

Film Life’s Black Movie Awards (BMAs) was an unprecedented awards ceremony in celebration of Black cinema: past, present and future. The BMAs was created to recognize and bring greater attention to the creative contributions made to cinema by people of African descent as well as to give merit to outstanding films portraying the Black experience.

The BMAs, founded by Jeff Friday in 1997, is a property of Film Life, Inc., a New York-based film marketing, media and distribution company. The company’s mission continues to spearhead the global distribution of quality Black films and be the leading American brand producing Black movies, television, events and digital content. Film Life’s other key properties include the American Black Film Festival (www.abff.com) and the ABFF DVD Series (www.thefilmlife.com) in partnership with Warner Home Video.

The past BMA’s have included Oprah Winfrey, Tyler Perry, and Cedric The Entertainer just to name a few.

Stay tuned as we will have more information on this soon!
