Let's put together a new indie film movement of DIY/ultra low budget filmmakers EXCEPT with films featuring minority & multi-ethnic casts & directors
Eventually we will establish a membership review board. For now, leave a comment.
Minority directors are highly encouraged to sign up for this new filmmaking movement. As are "white" directors (given that they are not closed off to using minority talent in front of & behind the camera).
We will promote our movies, get fest & investor & theatrical & DVD & cable distro support & tons of press as Mumblecore has gotten; except of course our movies will reflect the ethnic diversity in America far better.
