American Black Film Festival 2010

The American Black Film Festival (ABFF) took place this past weekend and I had the pleasure of attending. The festival is dedicated to strengthening the Black filmmaking community through resource sharing, education, artistic collaboration and career development. The festival offered me the chance to network with those of similar interest and passion for the art of film making. It also served as motivation after watching the HBO Short Film Competition. If you get a chance to check out the shorts make sure you don't miss out on the opportunity. The titles for the shorts are: If I Leap Moth Say Grace Before Drowning Stag and Doe The Cycle

I also got to watch the movie "Takers" which is a must see. The cast includes Chris Brown, T.I, Idris Elba, and others. Make sure you look out for Spike Lee follow up to When The Levees Broke which airs on HBO in August
