Hollywood Silver Screen Network is an authoritative and trusted source of entertainment business news, covering film, television, celebrity news and events such as the Oscars and the Emmy Awards.
Founded in 2014, Sprrkle Media is a minority-owned and women-owned film production company, founded by Dr. Petra Deeter. The company has produced and distributed films and TV-series in various genres. Its recent film REBORN, a drama about domestic violence, screened at the TLC Chinese Theater, the Landmark Theatres, and the Regal Cinemas, is gathering media attention and awards in the film festival circuit.
Dr. Petra Deeter said on a call with journalists:
"This move underscores our commitment to community building. As an experienced producer of content, we are ideally positioned to support this community. This deal enabled us to provide a platform where filmmakers, artists and fans can come together and celebrate art. The dreamers and the believers are those that will change the world. We want to empower them."
