Entrepreneur Marlon Palmer created the company Kush Promotions & from this launched the “Kush Film Club” in May 1998. Marlon had previously spent 16 years as an event/club promoter on the music entertainment scene.
Marlon, a great lover of the film industry felt that a promotional platform was very much needed in the UK to create widespread awareness of independent Black filmmakers & their films. Thus the new film exhibition screening platform, the “Kush Film Club” was launched. He also recognised that a new strategic and targeted style of marketing was needed to create widespread public awareness. Marlon decided to utilise various “urban guerrilla style marketing” techniques that he learnt whilst working in the nightclub promotions scene to create eventual widespread awareness of these disadvantaged and ignored filmmakers along with the necessary ‘hype’ required for the “Kush Film Club” & its unique platform.
Kushfilms.com was the first urban/black film entertainment website in the UK that specifically targeted the UK’s film-loving ethnic minority community with all the latest international/national black film news, reviews, events, industry jobs & funding opportunities.
