*Floyd Mayweather wasn’t the only winner this past weekend! While boxing fans crowded around big screens across the country, film enthusiasts piled into theaters at the Action On Film Festival (AOF) in Las Vegas and the BronzeLens Film Festival (BLFF) in Atlanta to see the award-winning film, “Created Equal” – an independently produced legal thriller that has sparked social debates and discussions regarding women’s equality and gender discrimination in religion.
From the West Coast to the East Coast, “Created Equal” not only held exclusive screenings at the two festivals, but also took home the WIN for multiple awards! At AOF, the film won “Best Picture” and “Best Actress,” and legendary actor/director, Bill Duke, received the esteemed Icon Award – the ultimate honor from AOF that celebrated his lifetime of achievements in Hollywood.
At BLFF, Created Equal took home the win for “Best Feature.” Deidre McDonald, artistic director of the BronzeLens Film Festival shared, “BronzeLens is pleased to have awarded Created Equal as our 2017 Best
Feature. Bill Duke’s skillful direction made a story of gender equality in the Catholic Church an exciting thriller.
Kudos, also, to Thada Catalon, an actress, writer, director and now producer who was able to bring it to the screen. I have no doubt we will see a lot of her films in the years to come!”
