” I simply wanted to create an online interactive forum for filmmakers with short dramas and documentaries to be seen and supported on, followed by an open discussion.  Although I love comedy, their is an overwhelming lack of support for drama and more so with documentaries. I want to do my part in balancing out stories about the black experience in cinema” states Angel L. Brown, Editor-In-Chief of CINEMATIQ Magazine.

CINEMATIQ magazine will feature the top 5 shorts viewed on the website and include in the printed issue every quarter. “Youtube is the video source used for this project. Youtube is the #1 site people go to in search of video’s.  The opportunity for exposure using youtube is by far, the best according to google search engine,” stated Angel L. Brown. “Millions view youtube daily.  Many artists get their start and get discovered on youtube. I’m hoping this program will attract executive producer looking for the next great film.  The goal is to get as many people as possible to view great work by indie filmmakers of color telling their stories in truth,” explained Angel L.
