The African American Film Critics Association has partnered with the broadcast network Revolt TV to spotlight rising young filmmakers in the new series “Short and Fresh,” a bi-monthly show that airs Friday’s at 10pm ET on Revolt.
Each one-hour episode of “Short and Fresh” provides audiences with a lens into independent urban short films and scripted content across genres from comedy to horror and romance.
To curate this program, AAFCA has issued a call-to-action targeting young creatives whose vision represents hip hop identity within film. Filmmakers interested in having their best work featured on “Short and Fresh” can share links via a portal on aafca.com. Candidates have until Friday, June 30 to enter.
“AAFCA collaborating with Revolt TV to curate video for ‘Short and Fresh’ fits well into our wheelhouse as an organization that’s dedicated to discovering and nurturing new talent in content creation,” says AAFCA president, Gil Robertson.
