AAFCA Offers CoronaVirus Shut-In Streaming Recommendations

Black Panther

During this time of global crisis prompted by the coronavirus, the African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA) has compiled multiple lists of recommended streaming titles for both children and adults to help people pass the time.

“These titles are a combination of series, documentaries and feature films, classic and contemporary, that cover the landscape of entertainment content. Our goal is to hopefully help lower the stress threshold and we are committed to recommending titles every week for as long as the crisis persists,” said AAFCA CEO Gil Robertson.

To help celebrate Women’s History Month during this critical time, AAFCA recommends listening to its special Women’s History Month edition of the AAFCA Podcast. Highlighting the cinematic experience through conversations with leading talent, creatives, and filmmakers, as well as leaders from the entertainment industry, AAFCA’s podcast is hosted by member Ed Adams and produced with support from Morgan Stanley Global Sports and Entertainment. The season two Women’s History Month spotlight will introduce listeners with some of Hollywood’s most accomplished creatives.

They include: “Harriet” producer Debra Martin Chase, “Toni Morrison: Pieces I Am” composer Kathryn Bostic, “Black Panther” production designer/Oscar winner Hannah Beachler, “Captain Marvel”/“Black Panther” hair department head Camille Friend and “When They See Us”/“Love and Basketball” editor Terilyn A. Shropshire.

“During this critical time, AAFCA happily invites everyone to join us in celebrating Women’s History Month by listening to the AAFCA Podcast as we spotlight the phenomenal women creatives who are making Hollywood a much better place,” said Robertson. “It is our hope that their stories will encourage and inspire the many other women creatives out there to tap into their power and continue pursuing their dreams, as well as give all others an appreciation for their contributions.”
