(Hollywood, CA) - The Black Hollywood Education and Resource Center (BHERC) presents: the 14th Annual Sistas Are Doin' It For Themselves: See Their Images. Hear Their Stories. Saturday, April 21, 2007 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. A Filmmaker Showcase and Discussion at Raleigh Studios, 5300 Melrose Avenue, Hollywood, CA (Melrose & Van Ness / across from Paramount Studios). Admission price is $10.00 and to RSVP please call (323) 957-4747.

Award-winning writer, director, producer, JULIE DASH, will moderate the BHERC event with an open dialogue between the filmmakers and the audience after the screening. These Sistas are determined to tell our stories and change the way the world views Black Cinema. Filmmakers and their films include: Numa Perrier (Judi); Antonia March and Jacqueline McKinley (Oxtails); K. Marie Walters (A Different Light); Dani Dixon (In Conflict with Kismet); Rachel Benjamin (The Missing Peace); and Rae Shaw (Soap and Roses). These films cover a vast array of topics, human interest stories to historical and sometimes go beyond our national borders. It remains interesting how very diverse these films end up being; not only in their story lines but in the cast and crew of the film teams themselves.
"We are proud of this year's Sistas... and the diversity of films that will be screened at the showcase," stated Program Director, Ralph Scott. "Sistas... is a very special showcase that has over time proven to be a breeding ground for inspiration, networking and future filmmaking teams. It is a moment that the filmmakers, moderator and audience will cherish for a lifetime."

The Black Education and Resource Center was formed in 1996 as a non-profit organization designed to advocate, educate, research, develop and preserve the history, as well as the future of Blacks in film and television. The BHERC produces, organizes and funds diverse cultural art, film and theater projects in order to capitalize on our rich foundation established in Hollywood. We not only promote more African Americans as artists, but have begun a "New Era" in the documentation of African American images.
