New York– On Sunday, January 23, 2011, AFFRM (African-American Film Festival Releasing Movement) hosted the first of our trio of dinners for black filmmakers and film thinkers at Sundance Film Festival.
These dynamic group conversations on “all things black + indie + film” shed optimism on the future of Black film, despite the reoccurring struggles Black filmmakers experience.
“The future of Black film is bright because we are going to decide to take over our future and decide it for ourselves”, television producer Felicia D. Henderson exclaims with certainty. The attendees’ optimism and pride for the art of film-making helps build a foundation for future independent Black filmmakers.
