The format of this years festival has been altered due to loss of venue and low submissions. All accepted films will be screened throughout the coming months as opening films during our “50 Greatest Films by Black Directors” film series.

Screening dates and times will be posted on this page. We plan to bring the festival back in 2017 better and more focused!

Thank you and keep creating!
