The American Black Film Festival

Miami Beach Cinematheque. From Jul 7 through 9, 2011.

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

And this year the ABFF has yet again compiled a dizzying schedule comprised of 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.”
