With funding for African American Movies Limited; BlackMovieOasis.com aims at closing the gap
Washington, DC (BlackNews.com) — In light of the recent “turmoil” surrounding the making and release of the “all-black cast” in the movie “Red Tails”, Black Movie Oasis aspires to provide an avenue for independent films to make it through distribution without the bias and racial undertone attached.
CEO/founder Dedric Thomas, comments, “As we (African Americans) become more integrated and diverse in the movie industry, independent filmmakers are finding it difficult to distribute and disseminate movies that focus on our history, culture and [assions. Our company acknowledges the void, and looks to offer alternative methods of distribution for our clientele.”
Founded in 2005, Black Movie Oasis has continued to grow and sustain during the turbulent economy, and focuses to remain dynamic in servicing its target demographic. The website offers the opportunity to reflect on the past through film, and simultaneously acknowledges the contributions from Trendsetters such as: Sammy Davis, Jr., Ozzy Davis, Marvin Van Peebles, Etta James, Pam Grier, Fred Williamson, Richard Pryor, and Sidney Portier just to name a few.
Concentrating on the African American movie industry has really given the company a “niche” in the movie industry, and as the company grows they are truly looking to become a cornerstone for the African American movie voice.
