An award-winning filmmaker and playwright, Klores has directed six films during the last 9 years, four of which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Mr. Klores’ work includes the Peabody Award-winning epic, “Black Magic,” which tells the story of the Civil Rights movement through the eyes of basketball players and coaches from our nation’s Historical Black Colleges and Universities, and “Winning Time: Reggie Miller vs. the New York Knicks.”
He is the author of “Roundball Culture: South Carolina Basketball” (1980 Strode Publications), and pens a regular column, “Mind Over Media” for “GRANTLAND,” the new ESPN/Bill Simmons web magazine.
Klores is the founder of DKC Communications, one of the nation’s most successful crisis management, marketing and public relations firms. He serves on the boards of the Brooklyn Academy of Music and the Children’s Health Fund (CHF), an organization established 25 years ago by the singer/songwriter Paul Simon to give free health care to homeless and indigent children. Launched in New York, CHF is now in more than 25 cities across America.
A lifelong New Yorker, Klores resides in Manhattan with his wife and three children. He decided to create the New Renaissance Basketball Association for two reasons – his love and passion for the game, and for children.
