NEW VOICES IN BLACK CINEMA
Presented in partnership with BAMCinematek, NVBC is a multi-genre film festival of quality movies geared towards getting audiences to appreciate and support quality, independent films from, by, and starring the African and Latino diasporas. The further purpose of this series is to give filmmakers the opportunity to showcase their talent on a grand stage where they can develop opportunities for limited distribution and create buzz for future industry contacts.
NVIBC is in its 6th year. Past screenings of acclaimed independent films to sold out audiences have included Ben Bowman's "Knuckehead" (starring Alfre Woodard and Gbenga Akinnagbe), Tommy Oliver's "1982" (starring Hill Harper and Wayne Brady), Tanya Hamiton's "Night Catches Us" (starring Kerry Washington & Anthony Mackie) , Ava DuVernay's fictional feature film debut "I Will Follow" and many more outstanding titles ("Big Words," "Tey," "alaskaLand," "Stones in the Sun," "Gimme the Loot," "The Central Park Five," "Infiltrating Hollywood: The Rise & Fall of the Spook Who Sat By The Door," "The Furious Force of Rhymes," "United States of Hoodoo").
