Organizer Tressa "Azarel" Smallwood

Organizer of 2022 DMV Film & TV Summit ( 3rd Annual)

Tressa "Azarel" Smallwood is an award-winning Book Publisher and Movie Producer. In 2003 after writing her first novel, Tressa resigned from her teaching tenure to fulfill her dream of becoming an author. Since then, she's penned 4 novels, and published many other authors resulting in over 162 published titles some of which are now being adapted to film and tv series. As a content catalog owner, Tressa's entrepreneurial work as both an author, book consultant and movie producer have been featured in Black Enterprise, EURWeb, The Source, Shadow & Act, Rolling Out, and many more.

Expanding into the film industry in 2014 Smallwood created her award-winning film company, MegaMind Media in the Washington DC area to shed light on the amazing talent in the area and to create fulfilling African-American content. Tressa has cast and worked alongside many accomplished actors such as Rob Riley, Denise Boutte, Clifton Powell, and Lamman Rucker. Smallwood's big break came in 2016 when her film Secrets was licensed by BET NETWORKS. Since then she has produced All In, the 2019 ABFF & BET award winning film, starring Lil Mama, Elise Neal, Lyric Hurd; Sinners Wanted staring Clifton Powell and Traci Braxton and The Available Wife starring KJ Smith, Terayle Hill, and Roger Guenveur Smith, all of which were filmed in the District of Columbia. Tressa is currently in development for three of her scripted TV Series, Caught Up, Positions, and Dirty Divorce (based off the best selling book series).

In her spare time, Smallwood mentors youth with her iFilm academy and hosts numerous programs through the Mayor's Summer Youth Program. She's most fulfilled by teaching others to duplicate her success.
