In honor of #BlackHistoryMonth , LBAFA has chosen “Black in Hollywood” as our theme to celebrate black filmmakers and actors. We aim to examine the trials & triumphs of these entertainers over the years, from Oscar Micheaux (the first black filmmaker, who produced 44 films during the silent era and beyond) & Hattie McDaniel (the first black Oscar winner, who was awarded her statue at a separate segregated ceremony), to the trailblazers of today like Jordan Peele & Viola Davis. We will also discuss how best to encourage & equip a new generation of diverse storytellers in the digital age of indie production and distribution, as well! We hope you will be a part of this evening, which will include screenings from African-American filmmakers!
FREE TO ATTEND, FREE PARKING. Drinks & dinner off the menu, separate checks. Come network, learn, promote yourself & your projects!
