It has always been our intention to host this festival as a live festival. This was to be the first year we were going to screen films for a live audience. Unfortunately, due to the Covid Quarantine that won't be possible for some time. As such, we won't be relaunching until we find a suitable production partner and can guarantee a date to screen films. Until then be safe and god bless.
Again our goal has always been to bridge the gap between emerging writers and producers looking to make films that represent the black experience. By shining a light on the cultures and historical perspectives that have shaped – and continues to shape – the lives of black populations in both the United States and abroad, we hope that the scripts and films generated will bring about a greater representation of black talent in the industry and in turn a greater number of black stories being told via film, television, and new media.
