TheBlackBoxOffice.com launched in 2008, after a year of being a newsletter and screening series. It has evolved into an info resource and blog for people who are passionate about entertainment news, but not so crazy about gossip and celebrity fluff pieces. We are all about the Global perspective of entertainment. Movies. Music. Books. Visual arts. We are dedicated to advancing, discussing, and exposing people to new art from around the world.
The Black Box Office is for the professional, the aspirant, the aficionado, the underwriters, the writers of reviews as well as the casts of others who contribute their talent, blood, sweat, and sometime tears to keep the industry viable and growing.
We’re about creating awareness. Supporting and building appreciation and audience.
Winner of “Best Film Blog” award in the 2010 and 2011 Black Weblog Awards, nominated for Best Fan Blog in the 2011 Total Film Movie Blog Awards, The Black Box Office is trusted by News organizations around the world, like Reuters, for our unique global perspective. We’re also an industry resource for The African American Film Critics Association, The oldest and largest body of multicultural critics in the United States.
We are a private, minority-owned company that is owned by a slightly larger, but also minority-owned family operated company. Our writers are based between Charlotte NC, New York City, ands Los Angeles CA in the USA as well as Ghana, Japan, the UK, Australia, Jamaica, Barbados, and South Korea.
You’ll notice that the editorial slant is heavy on the science and science fiction. We’re futurists. We’ve learned that the time we could spend complaining about what’s not happening is time better spent planning tomorrow.
For these reasons, you’ll notice that we talk about more than just “Black Hollywood” projects or American musicians. If you’re looking for what’s next, we’ve found that you have to look beyond your block.
So we celebrate, analyze, and discuss projects from Hollywood, Bollywood, Nollywood, and everything in between.
We are proud to be directly responsible for changing the landscape of independent multicultural film websites. We engage, innovate, and encourage social action – all through entertainment journalism!
