American Black Film Festival Going Virtual
After postponing its original date from July to October in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic The 24th annual American Black Film Festival (ABFF) is scheduled to take place online August 21-30 on abff.com.
According to the organisers the event “will continue the tradition of the live festival, featuring the best of independent black cinema, studio premieres, conversations and panels, the business of entertainment seminars, along with virtual networking events.”
Speaking on the announcement of the new dates, ABFF Ventures CEO Jeff Friday organisers of the fest also noted “While we will surely miss being with our ABFF community in Miami Beach this year and connecting in person, what truly binds us together is our shared commitment to ensure inclusion in Hollywood and sustaining a place of inspiration for diverse storytellers. We will persevere through this year and end up a stronger community on the other side of this crisis.”
