The Most Hospitable Festival for Black Filmmakers

New Orleans is a city that currently and historically has given voice to black American artists. Our city is deep in tradition and access for artists of color. It’s only right that we celebrate our film accomplishments as well.

Over the weekend of December 13 we will highlight filmmakers of color from New Orleans and throughout the United States. There will be an awards ceremony to recognize the best film and performances of the films submitted. And most importantly… there will be parties!
