Created by Filmmaker Anthony M. Greene (Going Down, The Henchman’s War, WDCFM), IndieCapitol was established to spotlight and promote the efforts of the Metropolitan area’s film community by providing coverage through IndieCapitol.com and the IndieCapitol Podcast. The show, directed by Cheryl M. Brown (Thick) and hosted by Pamela Nash (4&9 Productions) has continued to thrive by altering its platform and now will feature behind the scenes vignettes of local productions as well as coverage of film premieres. When deciding on the future of IndieCapitol and how to turn the program into a more visible platform to bring attention to locally produced content, the IndieCapitol team decided to incorporate a fully realized awards show for works produced and distributed by local filmmakers. You can see the episodes on the IndieCapitol YouTube Channel at http://www.youtube.com/IndieCapitol.
“The definitive purpose of the IndieCapitol Awards is to simultaneously strengthen and champion the local film community. Its goal is to create a milieu for area filmmakers to be noted for exceptional work while inspiring one another to push the creative boundaries of locally produced content.” – Anthony Greene
