Urban Action Showcase

 

 

 

 

The Urban Action Showcase is a 3 day Independent Action Showcase and Film Festival premiering minority filmmakers specifically in the Action Film Genre. Action is the genre of choice of fans and Studios alike when it comes to Summer Blockbusters not to mention 9 out of the top 10 highest grossing films to date all have Action at its core! The Danger, Thrill, and Excitement of the Action genre keeps us all at the edge of our seats from the small screen to the big screen and it would seem that the Action genre has it all accept for one very important factor, Diversity. Without equal opportunity and diversity any positive message can be misconstrued. By focusing on the thrill and excitement of the Action genre and recognizing the need for integration the Urban Action Showcase sets itself apart from other film festivals as the only one of its kind!

With the initiative of social responsibility and ethnic diversity, the Urban Action Showcase advocates minority actors, filmmakers, producers, and industry professionals of the Action film genre through workshops, panel discussion, screenings and events. Through strong networks and sponsorship support the Urban Action Showcase endeavors to encourage major studios to both include and pioneer more ethnically diverse casts and projects in the Action genre for example the Fast and Furious franchise. The Urban Action Showcase will continue to grow meeting and exceeding expectations with the help of our partnering sponsors and Indie Action fans across the nation. The Urban Action Showcase Indie Action Film Festival welcomes film and television Animation and Live Action Shorts and Feature narratives in all aspects of the Action genre.

The Urban Action Showcase is Executive Produced by Action Scene Combat Productions a full service production company pioneering ethnically diverse works in the Action film genre founded in 2000 by Demetrius Angelo the creator of the Urban Action Showcase.
