The accolades continue to roll in for Silver & Gold, as it’s been announced that the series has been named an official selection of the upcoming 5th annual New Jersey Web festival. The Jaro Media presented series is no stranger to acclaim, having amassed over 20 nominations from 10 different film festivals since its debut in October of 2022.
The series got off to a hot start, with 5 nominations at the 6th annual Minnesota Webfest, winning one for Best Series Script. Since then, the series has gone on to win Best Web Series from The Oniros Film Awards, Best Actress from The Virgin Spring Cinefest, and Best Director from The Cult Critic Movie Awards, amongst other honors.
Silver & Gold was created by Alonge Hawes, who also directs, writes, and serves as showrunner. The series stars Quentin Williams and Brittaney Traylor as Charles Goldar and Bahiya Payne, two of the smoothest, sexiest, and slickest thieves in the Atlanta underground. When, in the quest for bigger scores and greater riches, they decide to team up with an eccentric computer genius and a stoic conman, it all seems like a match made in bandit’s heaven. But when the sins of the past begin to ransack the riches of the present; this ragtag team of criminals will have no choice but to rely on something money can’t buy: Trust.
Silver & Gold also stars Roberto Cruz as conman Sosa Gerena and Shani Hawes as computer hacker Cierra Valentine. Julian Robinson, Joshua Quinn, Pantheah Hawes, Claudette Thomason, Roxzanne T. Mims, and Angela Van Tassel also star. The series is executive produced by Alonge Hawes through his A Million Stories One Pen Productions company.
Richard DeVaughn, Shani Hawes, Jamal McClendon, Rodderick Fedd, Joshua Dennard, and Cordarol Sanders serve as producers. The series first six episodes are available for streaming on Jaro TV through both the Jaro Media website and the Jaro TV Roku app.
The New Jersey Web Festival, created and run by Neem Basha, launched in 2018 and has since become one of the biggest, most prestigious, and respected film festivals dedicated to supporting and honoring independent film makers in web and podcast mediums. In addition to digital series and podcasts, the New Jersey Web Festival also works to highlight pilots, scripts, trailers and music videos from independent creators nationwide and abroad.
It is ranked as one of FilmFreeway’s best reviewed festivals and networking mixers. The festival’s long-standing adage is that “Quality Is The Only Criteria: We Want To Showcase The Very Best.”
The New Jersey Web Festival will take place September 21-24, with special screenings of official selections being held at the Clairidge Movie Theater in Montclair, NJ.
