Scott, reviewing Barry Jenkins' Medicine For Melancholy (2008) for the New York Times back in early 2009. Scott was hardly alone in his praise. A modest micro-budget film that made ripples on the festival circuit, Medicine For Melancholy was a day in the life of two black bohemians in San Francisco (Wyatt Cenac and Tracey Heggins), who, following a one-night stand, travel the city, share a tenuous courtship, and debate the challenges and contradictions of being black in a white cultural space.

27 June 2016 6:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Solidifying the relatively new marriage between Bet and the American Black Film Festival, the network and org joined together again for the Bet Experience during its awards show weekend in downtown Los Angeles.

Abff Encore consisted of multiple screenings of African-American films, as well as panels featuring “Black-ish” showrunner Kenya Barris, actor-director Robert Townsend (“Hollywood Shuffle,” “The Parent ‘Hood”) and actress Tasha Smith (“Empire”).

‘Straight Outta Compton,’ ‘Creed’s’ Michael B. Jordan and Ryan Coogler Rule at All Def Movie Awards

“It’s not about winning, it’s about celebrating.” These words were uttered by Ice Cube as he accepted the first Best Picture All Def Movie Award for “Straight Outta Compton” at the inaugural Adma show. The show’s co-creator Russell Simmons made a five-year deal with Fusion so he expects the new awards to continue in years to come. Simmons also made a point of saying that he had nothing to do with the scheduling of the show, which Fusion is airing opposite this year’s ABC’s Oscar telecast.

The Adma show is not your typical awards show by any stretch of the imagination, and that’s intentional, as Sanjay Sharma, President & CEO of All Def Digital explained. “Four weeks ago, this was an idea. In ten days, the real thing has come together,” he said. “We’re a multi-platform company. We’re nimble in our DNA. We »
