BlackStar Film Festival 2014 Panels

BlackStar Film Festival is the only event of its kind in Philadelphia—a celebration of cinema focused on work by and about people of African descent -

PhillyCAM features BlackStar 2014 panel discussions Saturdays at 12:30pm in Sept.



This panel will explore the intersection between the film and music industries from music videos, television programming, advertising, and artists/executives whose careers span both worlds. Panelists include: Sherwood Herndon (Wu-Tang manager & film executive producer), Angela Northington (Revolt TV), Jeymes Samuel (They Die By Dawn and musical artist The Bullitts), and Layne Eskridge (Executive for A Very Good Production company)

Composing for film:

Though we might think of film as an essentially visual experience it would be remiss to underestimate the importance of a soundtrack. The right soundtrack can intensify emotions and provide a swift rhythm for its audience. This panel will focus on exploring the musical elements while providing insights on composition through professional growth and development.

Panelists include King Britt and invited guests. Moderated by Rodney Whittenberg.



PhillyCAM is joined by Producer Christine O'Malley to discuss her latest documentary project "If You Build It" a part of Film Forward Project.
