The Hollywood Reporter features Streetballers
“Last weekend, the locally produced sports movie “Streetballers” cracked the national top ten at the box office. According to Variety, the film averaged more than $5700 per screen, ranking it ninth in the country, ahead of “G.I. Joe,” “Julie and Julia,” “The Hangover” and even “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince.” … “the per-screen average is a measure that gets Hollywood’s attention” Joe Williams, film critic for the Post-Dispatch
“Streetballers is a great movie. It can hold it’s own on “the court” visually with any high budget studio film but it was made for a tenth of the cost.” TheFlickFanatic.com http://www.theflickfanatic.com/Flickanalysis.php
“Overall, Streetballers killed all my expectations and left me excited for the future of the talent in this film. It is nice to see St. Louis represented by some great new up and coming talent. It is an impressive first feature effort from this team and I can only hope that their second effort is as good.” Reviewstl.com http://www.reviewstl.com/streetballers-movie-review/
“It’s rare for a locally made film to screen for paying customers, and rarer for it to screen at more than one venue. But the basketball flick ‘Streetballers’ is an honorable exception, a home-grown product that deserves a national rollout.” St. Louis Post-Dispatch
Two very good CASE STUDIES on Streetballers:
Streetballers hit the festival circuit in June 2008 making its World Premiere at The Hollywood Black Film Festival in Beverly Hills and has gone on to play in Saint Louis, Detroit, New York City, Nashville, Philadelphia, and North Carolina winning multiple awards such as Best Dramatic Feature, an Audience Choice Award for Best Feature Film, Best Cinematography, and a 2nd Place Jury Award for Best Feature Film. We were the highest scoring film in the 17-year history of the St. Louis International Film Festival, beating out previous winners Juno, The Wrestler, and Slumdog Millionaire. We’re in the process of doing something really amazing for independent films.
