Land of Opportunity

Project Timeline

Land of Opportunity began production all the way back in January 2006. In 2009, we attended the Working Films Content + Intent Residency at Mass MoCA, and participated in the IFP Rough Cut Lab. The project was featured in IFP’s Independent Film Week in 2007 and 2009, where we were nominated for multiple awards sponsored by the Fledgling Fund. On the 5th Anniversary of Katrina in August 2010, Arte broadcast the European version of the feature film in France and Germany. We also initiated the “pre-release” phase of our outreach and engagement campaign in August 2010.

With a “sneak peak” at the 2010 New Orleans Film Festival, Land of Opportunity made its premiere at the It’s All True ( É Tudo Verdade) International Documentary Film Festival in Rio de Janiero in the spring of 2011. Two more successful screenings followed at the Roxbury International Film Festival and Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival. The film was accepted into the film collective New Day Films and is available as an education resource for schools and universities. We also began working with the Ford Foundation and Black Public Media.org in developing an interactive web video player.
