SOULMATE explores the fact that 42.3% of Black American women have never been married and examines the challenges resulting from prolonged singleness and how this phenomenon arose within Black American culture. The film also offers practical advice on such issues as loneliness, the biological clock, the desire for sexual intimacy and the HIV/AIDS epidemic. This deeply personal journey offers glimpses into the trials and triumphs of the lives of accomplished, professional Black women who are finding purpose while single. Additionally, the film profiles Black women who married after age 40 and shares their journeys to the altar.

SOULMATE received the award for Best Documentary at the 8th Annual Hollywood Black Film Festival, adding to its mounting list of national awards and honors. "SOULMATE is a gem. A must-see film for all regardless of marital status; it's a celebration of our achievements, our spirituality and the joy we have from within. Everyday we're challenged to stand firm in our truth, and SOULMATE is a celebration and an affirmation of women of faith successfully doing that each and every day," states Hollywood Black Film Festival Programming Director, Jacqueline Blaylock.

SOULMATE garnered the Audience Choice Award at the Sweet Auburn International Film Festival in Atlanta, where it received rousing applause and praise. "The audience was captivated by this film," says Len Gibson, Founder-Chairman of Gipp Museums, Inc. and producer of the Sweet Auburn International Film Festival. "When the film was over, single women left feeling better about themselves," he states.

The film has also received both the Audience Choice and Best Feature Film Awards at the African-American Women in Cinema Film Festival in New York, while taking home the Best Documentary Award at the San Francisco Christian Film Festival and the Urban Vestige Film Festival in New York City. SOULMATE was voted Best Documentary among Black films in 2006 by acclaimed film critic, Kam Williams and has been discussed on numerous television networks and nationally syndicated radio shows -- from CBN and The Word Network, to "The Michael Baisden Show" and "The Tom Joyner Morning Show."
