Behind the Name

The original Hollywood Blacklist was a group of writers, directors, and artists in the 1930’s and 40’s that were investigated by the House of Un-American Activities Committee for their alleged involvement with the communist party. These people were cast out of Hollywood and were no longer hired by anyone in the film industry. The original Blacklist contained the names of some of the era’s most talented artists including Orson Welles, Arthur Miller, and Zero Mostel.

Most of the people included in the list had nothing to do with the communist party, but were merely non-conformists that refused to be bullied by the government or society.

This festival is forever dedicated to the people and arts that keep this world in balance.

We are proud to follow in the footsteps of the Blacklist by making original and unapologetic cinema.
