American Black Film Fest 6/23-26 (Miami Beach)

``We're in a difficult time right now for independent movies,
and these gatherings are like family reunions.
They help to pass on strength to other filmmakers to get up and do your thing --
grab your camera, find your actors and shoot your stuff.''
--Lee Daniels

This is the kind of advice AAPEX has been advocating since day one. Whether you are a playwright, screenwriter, novelist or something in between, it is imperative that you do not wait on the "kindness of strangers" to get your stuff seen, read, or staged. Be proactive when it comes to your career.

Lee Daniels, the Oscar-nominated director of Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire, will be honored with a special career tribute at the Lincoln Theatre on Saturday.
