Film Submissions

“We debuted our film ‘Fragile Beauty’ at Black Bear Film festival last year (2016) to a SRO audience, and it has since been accepted and become an award winner at other festivals.  This is the place to be seen.  Thank you Black Bear for giving our film its jump start.” 

— Wendy and Alan Kaplan, Producers
