On Sunday, April 30, 2006, filmmaker Monique Woods won the "Audience Choice Award" for her electrifying debut documentary, Finally Sayin' What I Really Mean at the 2006 Atlanta Hip Hop Film Festival.

Woods, whose production credits include MTV's reality show "Making the Band 2", ESPN Classic Sports Network and the CBS Sunday Morning News, initiates an in-depth look into the world of entertainment by discussing hip hop as the voice of a generation. With over 30 exclusive interviews, she also investigates the business of the music, the struggles independent artists encounter, as well as the trial and tribulations of being signed to a major label. Artists talk about how their music or image is redefined, stuffed in a box, packages and sold.

"This documentary is important because mainstream artists often don't have the opportunity to say how they really feel and independent artist don't get enough shine," says Woods. "Radio is so homogenized now. It only supports the same artists and the same kind of music. Finally Sayin' What I Really Mean gives different artists a chance to be heard."

Currently, Woods is working on the set of the Rain Forest Productions movie, Step Show starring Meagan Goode, Darrin Dewitt Henson and Columbus Short. In addition, she continues to devote her time to projects that record the legacy of African Americans in this country. Her next documentaries are Gateway Films' Lions, which documents the history of African American mayors in the United States and Passing The Torch, which illustrates the historical significance of voting rights.
