In Fall 2016, the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) will unveil the “ABFF Creators Summit” in Los Angeles, CA.  Hosted by Creative Artists Agency (CAA), the one-day summit for a select group of writers, producers and directors will include award-winning filmmakers from the 2016 American Black Film Festival. The goal of this intensive program is to provide diverse storytellers valuable insights into the process of pitching and developing film, television and web-based projects.  Attendees will also be connected with studio and network executives, agents and industry experts, who will help foster their career and will provide them with advice and knowledge about the entertainment industry.

“Programs like this are vital to broadening the perspectives of storytelling, where artists are schooled on how to prepare for real business opportunities and given access points otherwise extremely difficult to come by. We can’t thank CAA enough for hosting the ABFF and valuing diverse voices,” said Melanie Sharee, Programming Director at ABFF.

The “ABFF Creators Summit” is by invitation only.  Participants will be selected from filmmakers whose projects have previously premiered at the ABFF.

“CAA has long been committed to fostering the development of the next generation of diverse storytellers,” said Ryan Tarpley, Head of Diversity, CAA.  “We are proud to work with the ABFF to help create opportunities for emerging filmmakers to tell stories that are reflective of the world in which we live.”
