Facebook, Kickstarter, Demand It and other social media platforms have created a viral movie-loving audience, making 2011 an explosive year for the independent Black filmmaker. Online options are proving fruitful for movie producers with their backs against the wall and no distribution deals on the table. PR icon, Ava DuVernay used $50,000 of her own money to produce and release her film, I Will Follow, independently through AMC Independent after a social campaign couldn’t contain the demand for more Black films. First-time filmmaker, Qasim Basir, wrote and independently produced Mooz-lum, which he released domestically last February and beat out films like Justin Bieber: Never Say Never in per screen earnings. With the International Black Film Festival of Nashville declaring October Black Movie Month, BlackEnterprise.com highlights 10 of the top-grossing independent Black films. —Darralynn Hutson
