New York, New York May 25, 2010–CINEMATIQ Magazine is the brainchild of the Founder/Executive Producer of Queer Black Cinema International Festival Angel L. Brown. In 2006, after seeing the lack of representation in various film series/festivals throughout New York City, Angel created Queer Black Cinema, a monthly micro-cinema screening Black LGBT themed films.

Two years later Angel single-handedly launched Queer Black Cinema International Festival, a four day Annual event screening the Best Black LGBT theme films from around the world. Submissions were open to both gay and straight filmmakers to submit stories of the Black LGBT experience. QBC Int’l Festival past line up includes QBC Int’l Festival past line up includes, Opening film, Mississippi Damned directed by Tina Mabry (Winner of Urban World Film Festival/ABFF),  Truth Hall directed by Jade Jenise Dixon  winner of 2008 QBC Int’l Festival for Best Feature which most recently aired on BET and Finding Me directed by Roger Omeus Jr picked up by TLA Releasing, one of the longest standing LGBT distribution companies in the US.

 

“Creating CineMatiq Magazine was a natural step for me. I had the idea in my head since the launch of QBC micro-cinema in 2006. It was a matter of time and experience learning the film business and becoming a leading resource/consultant of Black  cinema. Launching CineMatiq was another way for me to give back to the community creating a platform in print, archiving film critique for people to discussion and debate for generations long after I leave this earth.” – Angel L. Brown

CINEMATIQ will be a quarterly publication available in print exclusively at http://www.cinematiqmag.com. It will feature indie and mainstream filmmakers on the cover. Content will include everything from film reviews to equipment suggestions and production advice columns.

Brown has traveled the world shooting and producing projects from London to South & East Africa and has been featured in several printed magazines including GO Magazine popular issue “100 Women We Love”, NYANSAPO, TimeOut NYC and many others.
