Is it time to spend less energy lobbying mainstream media to be more diverse and spend much more energy creating and supporting the media you want to see?Read More
Well it’s been a few weeks since we launched Bino and Fino. It has been very hectic. The best thing so far is having the opportunity to meet parents and kids in person. I am currently in London and we have had several screenings of the Bino and fino cartoon. One was a cinema screening of Bino and Fino as part of the Images of Black Women Film Festival which was a great event. It was arranged by Tony Warner of Black History Walks with the founder of the festival Sylviane Rano as part of an African animation Forum. They also showed the wonderful Cuban inspired animation Chico and Rita. I was able to meet parents and children. They received the episode of Bino and Fino they saw very well. They even gave it a little round of applause! J I’ve always known that there’s a market for well made African cartoons for kids. Why wouldn’t there be? But it’s always nice to see it confirmed face to face by kids and parents.
