Black Film Festival Starts Tuesday In Miami

MIAMI -  The American Black Film Festival (ABFF) comes back to Miami to celebrate the contributions that the African-American community has made to the film industry. 

Black News, African American News, Minority News, Civil Rights News, Discrimination, Racism, Racial Equality, Bias, Equality, Afro American NewsThis year the ABFF schedule includes four days of film screenings, cocktail receptions, workshops, and "master classes" taught by the likes of Robert Townsend and Spike Lee.

ABFF founder, Jeff Friday says, "Every year the American Black Film Festival showcases new talents, new films, a new honoree, and new workshops. This year we will honor Keenan Ivory Wayans. Another unique event this year is our discussion with John Singleton, celebrating the 20th anniversary of Boys in the Hood."

Friday continues, "The master classes, the screening of films featuring new talent, and paying tribute to black Hollywood trailblazers, are the reasons why the ABFF is still necessary." He adds, "Hollywood isn't going in the right direction. The festival has to keep beating the drum, we want to be a platform to show what black artists can do."

​ABFF 2011 kicks off Tuesday with the opening night film, Townsend's In the Hive, at the Colony Theater at 5:45 p.m. 
 
 

John Singleton fans can check out "ABFF Remembers: The Enduring Significance of Boyz n the Hood," at the Ritz Carlton at 1:30 p.m. on Thursday and enjoy a screening of a documentary which details the making of Singleton's seminal work, followed by a Q&A session with the master himself.

Friday brings Bill Duke's (CommandoPredator) Actor's Boot Camp, at 3 p.m. 

Saturday brings the ABFF Awards After Party to wrap up the festival.
