Issa Rae, HBO Max and Miramax are reviving the critically acclaimed docuseries “Project Greenlight,” which originally spotlighted first-time filmmakers on HBO.

The new “Project Greenlight” will focus on talented female filmmakers who are given the chance to direct a feature film. Rae will appear in every episode as an executive producer, providing guidance and mentorship to the aspiring filmmakers. The finished film will then premiere on HBO Max.

This time around one talented, undiscovered woman director will have the opportunity to make a studio film that is intended to be released in 2023. The chosen director will take a Hollywood script through pre-production, casting, principal photography and post production.

“Many of us blerds (black nerds, to you) who have read the Black Panther comics never thought the day would come when we would finally see this story adapted for the big screen.

We’re hearing the word “Afrofuturism” a lot.

Jamie Broadnax, Founder and editor-in-chief of Black Girl Nerds writes:

But what exactly is Afrofuturism?

Afrofuturism is the reimagining of a future filled with arts, science and technology seen through a black lens. The term was conceived a quarter-century ago by white author Mark Dery in his essay “Black to the Future,” which looks at speculative fiction within the African diaspora. The essay rests on a series of interviews with black content creators.”
