IndieWire - National Black Programming Consortium/Silicon Harlem Hackathon Winners Announced

It’s an event that I unfortunately couldn’t attend last week, but that I’m more than glad to support however possible, and that you should know about, given its overall intent.

Earlier this year, out of a field of 163 applicants, the National Black Programming Consortium (NBPC), a Harlem-based media arts nonprofit, selected 8 winners for its new incubator program, NBPC 360. The new funding initiative is designed to identify innovative storytellers and to generate quality serial, digital and multi-platform content for television and the Web.
