In response to the current crisis and its disproportionate impact on communities of color, the 2020 American Black Film Festival will now be held as a virtual event. It will feature a wide range of recording artists, actors and public figures. Some of the confirmed acts include: MC Lyte, Method Man, Mary J. Blige, Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson, and that is just to name a few.
Continuing the tradition of the live festival, the digital version will include screenings, celebrity conversations, panels and seminars centered around the business of entertainment, as well as virtual networking opportunities.
The 24th annual American Black Film Festival will take place from Friday, August 21st through Sunday, August 30th, and it will stream live via abff dot com.
