Delvin Molden, writer, director and producer, also has experience running an entire production company: in 2002 and afterward he served as Head of Production for Florida's Breakaway Films, a leader in urban genre films. There Mr. Molden oversaw production of a slate of feature films including the comedy Out on Parole, Carlita’s Secret, a crime th

riller starring Eva Longoria in her first film role, the highly-praised comedy Bahama Hustle, thriller The Evil One, and music comedy My Big Phat Hip-Hop Family. On these productions Mr. Molden often served as unaccredited screenwriter and director, fulfilling those roles while overseeing more than one production simultaneously.

All of Mr. Molden’s Breakaway productions have been pur
chased by Lionsgate for worldwide video distribution, an amazing feat in a very crowded, competitive marketplace - Lionsgate is the largest independent video distribution company in the industry, and its eagerness to secure all Mr. Molden’s Breakaway films is a prestigious endorsement of his work. Previously Mr. Molden wrote, directed, and produced his first feature film Love Relations, an urban romantic comedy that screened at several film festivals to rave reviews. In 2003 Artisan Entertainment purchased video rights to Love Relations and later Starz Encore Premium cable network aired the movie in regular rotation. The network also filmed and aired a new artist interview with Mr. Molden, who discusses his career as an emerging filmmaker.

That career began with a degree in film from Chicago’s Columbia College where his student film Daniel's Prayer won best of class, and where Mr. Molden authored a book on African-American market demographics, entitled “African-American Film Statistics and Marketing Strategies.” Later in Chicago, Mr. Molden started a non-profit inner-city program called “Know the Difference” which aimed to teach inner-city kids the art of filmmaking.
