Submit Your Project For Review and Potential ‘Featured’ Article!
Our goal here is to help new indie film makers produce the best possible film by providing a service that has been lacking in the African American independent film communities of Louisiana:
An impartial, constructive review!
We will showcase select short and full length featured films on our world wide social networks and affiliated partners’ internet televised sites. As well as cross fed through our various partnered Youtube networks. From time to time we discover a new indie production worthy of world debut. These artists and a short post become a “LBF Highlight” of which the best are chosen to be recognized in the annual LBF Honors. Our review fees are waived for these selectees.

WHY CHARGE TO SUBMIT A FILM FOR REVIEW?
It costs money to review the films. Whether that be via mailing the various DVDs or site usage.
WHY DOES IT COST $10 TO REVIEW AN ONLINE BUT $15 TO REVIEW A MAILED-IN DVD?
Mailed-in DVDs mean we have to pack and ship them to the different writers, and that has a very real shipping cost. The extra $5 covers that cost.
DOES PAYING FOR A SUBMISSION MEANS I GET A GOOD REVIEW?
No. You’re paying to use the service, which is getting your film in front of professional writers so they can review your unsolicited project. You’re not paying for the editorial content.
PAYING TO SUBMIT FOR REVIEW DOES NOT MEAN YOU WILL AUTOMATICALLY GET A POSITIVE REVIEW.
DO YOU REVIEW ALL SUBMITTED FILMS?
We reserve the right not to review a film submitted to us, for various reasons at our discretion. If we decide not to review a film submitted we will refund the submission fee.
WHAT IF YOU GIVE MY FILM A NEGATIVE REVIEW, CAN I REQUEST THAT YOU REMOVE THE REVIEW FROM THE SITE?
No. We stand behind the honest judgements we make on all reviews.
MAY I USE ONE FORM TO SUBMIT MULTIPLE FILMS?
Only submit one form, per film. This makes it easier to track submissions and, in the cases where different writers may review films from the same director, mailed in at the same time, it allows us to be even more accurate in our review turnaround timetable.
MAY I SEND A FILM ANYWAY?
If your film is unsolicited, then it won’t be reviewed.
HOW DO I TRACK MY SUBMISSION?
If mailing a DVD, you’ll get an email when your film has arrived. Both online and mailed submissions will get an email when the reviews have been scheduled for publishing. Due to the large response to this service, expect a review in 4-6 weeks.
We do not return the films or submission materials so DO NOT send originals.
Drop us a line if you have more questions.
*Non-Published (or Private) Critiques:
Should you would prefer to not have your critique made public, we now perform critiques privately that will not be published.
We charge $350 for shorts and $550 for features when we are not able to utilize these critiques as additional content for the magazine.
If interested in this, please email the editor directly at: email@example.com.
Our goal is to help people improve their work, so it is presented in the presentation best it can be!
