Enlighten Me radio show w/ Andrea Cambron

Hear the show here!

Hey Fam,

I recently celebrated a film debut at a film festival for a good friend of mine and it was thrilling to be in the film space again. I saw films that put mainstream theater releases to shame. Chopping it up amongst peers about styling conventions and character arch and development was like coming home.

So as DC celebrates it’s annual Black Film Festival tomorrow through the weekend, I thought it would be good to highlight some of the films you won’t see in mainstream theaters. I’ll have Kevin Sampson, Founder of the festival on the program as well as feature some filmmakers like WIll Feagins and Deanna Del Ciello that you may want to keep an eye on.

Tune in every Wednesday from 4-5p ET on WERA-FM 96.7 in Arlington, Va or check us out online at Facebook.com/EnlightenMeOnWERA or Twitter @EnlightenMeWERA@andreacambron.



Kevin Sampson

The fact that Kevin Sampson is not just a film critic, but a writer, producer, and director as well makes his understanding of cinema even better. Coming from a theoretical and hands on approach, he understands both sides of the struggle of viewing and creating great works. After receiving an MFA in Film & Electronic Media from American University in Washington, D.C in 2011, Kevin took his love for film to the next level by creating and producing Picture Lock, an entertainment website, podcast, and hour long film review TV show that runs on Arlington Independent Media’s public access station in Arlington, VA. The show covers new releases, classic films, and interviews with local filmmakers in the DMV area. He is also a member of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association and African American Film Critics Association. He is currently looking forward to filming his first feature film in the near future. He believes that film is one of the most powerful art forms in the world, and he hopes that he can use the craft to inspire others and make a difference in it.
