Urban Action Showcase





The Urban Action Showcase is a 3 day Independent Action Showcase and Film Festival premiering minority filmmakers specifically in the Action Film Genre. Action is the genre of choice of fans and Studios alike when it comes to Summer Blockbusters not to mention 9 out of the top 10 highest grossing films to date all have Action at its core! The Danger, Thrill, and Excitement of the Action genre keeps us all at the edge of our seats from the small screen to the big screen and it would seem that the Action genre has it all accept for one very important factor, Diversity. Without equal opportunity and diversity any positive message can be misconstrued. By focusing on the thrill and excitement of the Action genre and recognizing the need for integration the Urban Action Showcase sets itself apart from other film festivals as the only one of its kind!

With the initiative of social responsibility and ethnic diversity, the Urban Action Showcase advocates minority actors, filmmakers, producers, and industry professionals of the Action film genre through workshops, panel discussion, screenings and events. Through strong networks and sponsorship support the Urban Action Showcase endeavors to encourage major studios to both include and pioneer more ethnically diverse casts and projects in the Action genre for example the Fast and Furious franchise. The Urban Action Showcase will continue to grow meeting and exceeding expectations with the help of our partnering sponsors and Indie Action fans across the nation. The Urban Action Showcase Indie Action Film Festival welcomes film and television Animation and Live Action Shorts and Feature narratives in all aspects of the Action genre.

The Urban Action Showcase is Executive Produced by Action Scene Combat Productions a full service production company pioneering ethnically diverse works in the Action film genre founded in 2000 by Demetrius Angelo the creator of the Urban Action Showcase.

Keeping it Real

These days people go and watch movies that have high quality visual effects and enjoy seeing large explosions, incredible creatures that look as of they could really exist, mind blowing action sequences, 3D images, and a variety of different effects that technology is allowing filmmakers and studios -who have the budget- to do. However, with all the advances there is always the same complaint from movie goers and critics saying that what they are seeing on screen is not realistic. They a...

Mainstream Hollywood is losing its touch, it's time to look into independent film festivals where we could find the filmmakers of today, living ...

Gigantic Saturday

Love, alcapurrias, and Don Francisco. Just a typical Saturday night in The Bronx. Maria and Jose, a thirty-something Nuyorican couple, lead a normal and quiet existence. Well, as quiet and normal as The Bronx will allow. One particular Saturday night, Maria feels the urge to shake things up. She wants to dance! Jose, though, would rather stick to his usual routine: sit on the couch, eat cuchifritos (fried stuff), and watch his favorite television show “Sabado Gigante” hosted by Don Francisco.
