Founder & Principal
The fact that Kevin Sampson is not just a film critic and film festival director, but a writer, producer, and director as well, makes his understanding of cinema and the business of show even better. Coming from a theoretical and hands on approach, he understands both sides of the struggle of viewing, creating great works, and ensuring they are seen. After receiving an MFA in Film & Electronic Media from American University in Washington, D.C in 2011, Kevin took his love for film to the next level by creating and producing Picture Lock, an entertainment website, radio show/podcast in 2012. He has served as the director of the Rosebud Film Festival since 2012, and recently launched the DC Black Film Festival in 2016. He is also a member of the Washington DC Area Film Critics Association, North Carolina Film Critics Association and African American Film Critics Association.
As a boutique firm focused on film and film events we want to go the extra mile to ensure our clients success because we believe in their mission!
