Emmy award-winning independent filmmaker Dante James spearheads the Hollywood Weekly Magazine TV and film production unit, a new division of our film festival (HWMFF). In addition to show running his Black Pearl Media Works and Hollywood Weekly projects, he is available to show run projects for independent companies and individual filmmakers in association with the emerging Hollywood Weekly Magazine production and distribution network. Dante's unique production experience in both narrative and documentary filmmaking coupled with Hollywood Weekly Magazine's extensive promotion and branding expertise positions Hollywood Weekly Magazine production, consultation, and distribution services to take projects from conception to production, promotion, and distribution.
Currently, HWMFF has a first-look deal with BK Fulton's Soulidifly Productions and is exploring deals with several major streaming services. We are now accepting new submissions.
All film projects will be reviewed by our judges and published in our magazine for public feedback. Those with demonstrated reader interest and favorable judges rating will be featured in our Film Festival.
Upon submission you have the option of purchasing advertising space in our magazine and featured in an article written by HW staff that will be published in our International, National or Los Angeles area distributed Hollywood Weekly Magazine. Films with the most favorable rating will be screened at the 7th Annual HWMFF which will be held at a major studio in Los Angeles on November 7, 2020.
