The Urban Action Showcase is on a mission to change the stereotypical way that People of Color are portrayed in mainstream media by presenting and promoting Heroic images that reflect Multicultural images and interests. The UASE was created out of concern for the lack of positive Heroic role models of color in the Action film genre. We are trying to play a part in the shifting of the common and unflattering portrayal of minorities in entertainment. We do this in several ways from encouraging the craft through our UAS International Action Film Festival platform competitions which boasts the Cinemax Action Short Film Competition, by exposing previous works that represent positively and teaching all necessary skills of the trade through our Action Expo and Awards platforms.
In order to grow and make a significant impact in the industry we need your support! A collective front is the message that we need to be able to send to the Powers that Be. By showing your support trough your Event Pass purchases, Exhibitor Booth registration or Donations will allow us to offer a better experience to both Fans and Professionals.
Check out why we believe we are worth your support!
