2015 will mark inauguration of the 1st annual Global Revolution Film festival. The idea for the festival came about after founder and coordinator Jamal Blair had spent much of 2014 Promoting and screening his sci-fi feature “Forgotten Kingdom” at various festivals. During this time came in contact with other “fantasy” filmmakers, and through their discussions; he realized how very often Sci-fi and Fantasy films we’re not accepted into mainstream festivals.
Jamal decided to create a festival that would help give Sci-Fi and Fantasy filmmakers the recognition they deserved. The festival is slated to run Aug. 27-30:
