The ABFF (American Black Film Festival) is a four-day event dedicated to showcasing quality films by and about people of African descent. Committed to the belief that Black content creators and artists deserve the same opportunities as their mainstream counterparts, ABFF founder Jeff Friday conceived the festival in 1997 as a vehicle to promote diversity in the film and television industry. Today it serves as the preeminent pipeline to new Black talent in front of and behind the camera, and is regarded as one of the leading film festivals in the world. The 18th annual ABFF will be held in New York City, June 19-22, 2014.
To celebrate its 18th year, ABFF is relocating to the diverse metropolis of New York City: a place synonymous with bringing people from all walks of life together. We’re designing a magical village within it, where you will be able to delve into all kinds of diverse stories not available at your local theater. Four days of Hollywood premieres, indie films and dynamic events such as ABFF’s new Entertainment and Lifestyle Expo, celebrity conversations, master classes, film and TV focused panels, plus our hit comedy show, are all being staged to entertain, inform and connect people with a common passion for Black culture.
