Attention all aspiring filmmakers!

The African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) and REVOLT have cooked up something special just for you. The world’s largest group of leading black film critics has partnered with the hip-hop network to spotlight rising young filmmakers in the new series titled Short and Fresh. The bi-monthly show airs Friday’s at 10pm ET.

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.

“REVOLT is a black-owned multi-platform media company and the leading voice of Hip Hop culture,” says Robyn Lattaker-Johnson, Head of Content and Development at REVOLT. “We’re excited to be working directly with AAFC as experts to identify rising stars in the film space. This next generation of filmmakers spearhead the broader social conversation that moves the culture forward, and REVOLT celebrates those voices. Our lens, our experiences, our stories.”
