Event Description

Black Hollywood Education and Resource Center (BHERC) is pleased to announce REEL BLACK MEN, a short film showcase featuring the artistry of emerging African American Male Filmmakers. BHERC is presenting seven short films, a Talk Back with directors, producers, cast and crew and concluding the evening with a Reception and Networking.

The 2018 Reel Black Men Films and Filmmakers include: ROMANCE IS DEAD (13:00 Min.) by Todd Jackson; THE BOY AND BORIS (6:00 Min.) by Johnny Dutch; KEEPING DAVID (16:00 Min.) by Rodney Mark Johnson; BLACKGROUND (6:00 Min.) by Nic L. Kelly; DISCHARGE (16:00 Min.) by Max Philisaire; BEAST FACTOR (6:00 Min.) by 10 year old actor Michael Myles Hayes; and THE LEGEND OF JOHN HENRY (7:00 Min.) by Nick Brooks. The diverse topics focus on racial identity, loss, PTSD, bullying, and monsters.

This screening and dialog is an opportunity for emerging African American male filmmakers to showcase their skills, talent and vision through film screenings, while giving the audience a chance to view and discuss the artistry, passion and sacrifice involved in the independent filmmaking process.

BHERC was formed in 1996 as a non-profit organization designed to advocate, educate, research, develop and preserve the history, as well as the future of Blacks in film and television. The BHERC produces, organizes and funds diverse cultural art, film and theater projects in order to capitalize on our rich foundation established in Hollywood. BHERC not only promotes more African Americans as artists, but have begun a “New Era” in the documentation of African American images.
