The Movement Magazine REMIXED is the Premier Magazine for The NIFF Newark International Film Festival www.NewarkIFF.com

The Newark International Film Festival The 3-day festival showcased the breadth of the film industry including screenings at a number of cultural anchor institutions and outdoor screenings, stunt exhibitions, pitch opportunities and auditions for TV and film, acting, directing, producing and crowd funding workshops, and much more was showcased. The NIFF is the first international film festival hosted in Newark. A main feature of the NIFF was the Hannibal Goodwin Award for Innovation in Filmmaking in homage to Hannibal Goodwin, the Episcopal priest who invented celluloid film 1887 in Newark, NJ. The Newark International Film Festival (NIFF) is dedicated to the art of storytelling through film. The 2016 NIFF put filmmakers in front of major players in the film industry and movie lovers from around the world. NIFF’s audience is important, affluent, and eager to celebrate. The city of Newark has a rich history of fostering great artists and innovators who have created definitive work. As the birthplace and/or workplace of names like Seth Boyden, Thomas Edison, Hannibal Goodwin, Brian De Palma, Savion Glover and many more, Newark

continues to make its mark on the world. The festival brought in approximately 30,000 people to the city of Newark during the 3-day festival. All participants and ticket holders received a NIFF black card that allowed them to purchase food and merchandise at participating retailers and restaurant at a discount.

Opening Night The 2016 Newark International Film Festival began with a red carpet VIP reception on opening night for dignitaries, sponsors, celebrities and partners. The reception was hosted by the NIFF Committee and our celebrity ambassador.

Screenings Screenings during the film festival was shown throughout Newark at cultural anchor institutions such as Newark Symphony Hall, The Newark Museum, Newark Public Library, Rutgers University, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Essex County College, Military Park and the Cityplex Theater.

Workshops Throughout downtown Newark we hosted a number of workshops for actors, directors, producers, filmmakers, and writers, as well as stunt exhibitions and training, and celebrity meet and greets. We were especially excited about workshops and demonstrations of film production equipment highlighting new technologies.

Youth Festival We are very proud to have had offered a youth component to the NIFF for youth under the age of 19. The youth festival was included in the NIFF body but was governed by a separate group, that ensured that the youth were treated fairly and had the same opportunities available to the professional filmmakers in the NIFF. Adult filmmakers were not allowed to enter the youth festival however a youth was able to submit their body of work into any competition in both the youth and adult components.

Community Impact Our goal for the Newark International Film Festival was to provide opportunities, platforms, and bring awareness to great talent in filmmaking throughout the year. The NIFF has a not-for-profit component that serves in the city of Newark all year round in partnership with the Newark Office of Film & Television.

The partnership will host special workshops, training and job development for Newark residents in the film industry as well as the next upcoming film festival. Â One of the programs that the festival will support is the Script to Screen program. Youth ages 12 to 21 will be encouraged to help create a movie or TV idea as a group and see it through from script conception to screen, while learning all of the aspects of the business.

Awards Ceremony The 2016 Newark International Film Festival award show was hosted at The New Jersey Performing Arts Center. The awards show was a two and a half hour show with celebrity hosts and performances. The NIFF awards show was filmed and packaged for TV and the rights to the show will be shopped around to cable and television networks.

Wrap Party We hosted our wrap party filled with dignitaries, celebrities, sponsors, partners, and attendees. Anyone that was not dancing to the sounds of our celebrity guest DJ was either forming new partnerships, making new friends, or closing a new deal.

Shaquille O’Neal Executive Produced film STEPS mirrors a society based on Redemption, Love and Forgiveness! Posted by shesvintage Society has become very individually driven in the last decade or two. Many people walk the same route every day to work or school but hardly pay attention to the faces they past or often judging the less fortunate on the street. Do you ever wonder what happen to people who now wonder the streets? Indie feature film STEPS, written by Eddie Harris, is going to challenge you to begin to care and understand the desperate life walks others take. STEPS follows the story of Brian (Rob Morgan),the victim of a robbery and shooting survives, but years later unpredictably must work as a home health aide for the shooter,Taj, who is now paralyzed from a shooting. Now Brian wasn’t a guy going to the corner store to do anything illegal but rather a young lawyer and family man. His wounds from being shot and near death experience sends him on a dark negative road he couldn’t have ever imagined forcing him to loose his wife Wendy (Tia Dionne Hodge)and newborn son Omar (Darius Kaleb). STEPS is the story of recovery, redemption, love and forgiveness.

Tony James, Filmmaker

Brooklyn, NY – Dope Vision, the production team behind the film, announced the official world premiere of it’s highly anticipated film – a slick and powerful piece that has both critics and film fans near-fiending for more. “Dope Fiend” debut at the 2016 Newark International Film Festival, which was held in Newark, New Jersey on September, 10th at 7pm. The trailer and movie mark the onscreen debut of Marquise Jackson, the son of rap legend 50 Cent. “’Dope Fiend’ tells an important story that shouldn’t be forgotten, being based on true events,” commented a spokesperson from the film. “The gentrification of Brooklyn wasn’t something as smooth and clean as many people would like to think or suggest, and the line between hero and villain in NYC is often a very surprising one. Dope Fiend delivers the brutal truth in these areas, while never losing track of the people caught up in the conspiracy and chaos, their friendships, betrayals and very real love. We’re looking forward to the film’s release. We think it’s going to provoke some real thought and discussion, in addition to being very exciting and entertaining.”

CEO of The Newark International Film Festival Ken Gifford

Tobias Truvillion 2016 Ambassador (NIFF)

Tobias Truvillion is an award-winning TV, film, and theatrical actor and producer from Queens, New York. Dedicated to youth development and empowerment, he is a philanthropist and longtime youth media arts instructor at the Dr. Marion A. Bolden Center in Newark, New Jersey. The ex-Ford model’s resume includes an array of high profile international and domestic print and TV commercial advertising campaigns, e.g., Heineken’s “Double Nod” (TV), Footlocker (TV with rapper Fabolous), Gulder Beer (Nigerian National TV), and Jordan’s legendary “Six Rings” (print). In 2001, pursuing an acting career, he joined the Harlem’s iconic National Black Theater. A proven natural thespian, his stellar performance as “Shango,” in the theatrical musical “Oya” (his first acting role), earned Tobias a prestigious

AUDELCO Award for “Best Male in a Musical.” Subsequently, Tobias who Indiewire hails as a “transformative actor,” became known for a bevy of captivating TV, film, theatrical roles, including ‘Flesh and Bone,’ ‘White Collar,’ ‘Brooklyn’s Finest,’ ‘Hitch,’ ‘Blue Bloods,’ ‘Black Angels Over Tuskegee,’ ‘Persons of Interest,’ and several leading music video roles (e.g., Grammy Award winning songstress Fantasia Burrino’s “Free Yourself ” and “I’m doing Me”), as well as many other acclaimed productions. His cunning portrayal of Vincent Jones, who upheld an ongoing love affair with Layla Williamson (Tika Sumpter) on ABC’s “One Life to Live,” earned Tobias a 2008 NAACP Image Award nomination for “Outstanding Actor in Daytime Drama Series.” Consistently pushing artistic boundaries, his latest recurring role as music producer Derek Major (“D-Major”) on season 2B of the Fox breakout hit musical drama TV series, ‘Empire,’ is indicative of Tobias’s ongoing diversity and evolution.

From Thought to Screen. How to make a successful web-series There was a firsthand behind scenes in depth conversation with the creators and cast of MONEY & VIOLENCE Money and Violence is a drama web series that was birthed to YouTube and Cloud9TV.net. Since its current success and over 50 million views, money and violence found its second home on the popular streaming site “TIDAL� after a crowd funding and deal signing with LIONSGATE. Money and Violence chronicles the lives of Miz, Rafe, Shane and Kane; four Brooklyn natives who learn to follow the strict code of the streets. The complexities of them and their associates unfold in this drama series that takes place in Flatbush, Brooklyn, NY. The crews are all first time actors, editors, writers and cinematographers who are self-taught. They embody the guerrilla independent filmmaking spirit. Money and Violence is a not your average local neighborhood story tale, this show will give you a look into the old Brooklyn in a newer light.

Larenz has come a long way from O-dog to this handsome specimen you see before you below.

Egypt Young always gets the scoop from entertainers themselves.

Larenz was very down to earth and approachable. This young man has a swag about him that is unfamiliar with young men today. Everyone was extremely impressed with the way he connected with the audience as well as everyone backstage. We were are very proud of his acting accomplishments but his philanthropic work is incredible, he and his brothers actually care about people and they are working diligently to help them move forward.

 Game of Silence and House of Lies alum Larenz Tate is set for a recurring role on the upcoming fourth season of Starz’s hit drama series Power.
 Tate will play Councilman Rashad Tate, a city councilman from Jamaica Queens.
 Power follows James “Ghost” St. Patrick (below), a drug kingpin living a double life who in season 4 seeks to find redemption. Power returns for its fourth season this summer.
 Courtney A. Kemp serves as the Creator, show-runner and Executive Producer of Power, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson (above right), Mark Canton, Randall Emmett and Gary Lennon serve as Executive Producers. In addition to Game of Silence and House of Lies, Tate starred on FX’s Rescue Me.
