With the weather getting hot, Miami Beach is often considered a destination for sun, sand, and fun, but it’s also a destination for bold new cinema. The American Black Film Festival (ABFF), running June 13 - 17, 2018 is an annual event dedicated to showcasing quality film and television content by and about people of African descent. Founded by Jeff Friday, it supports emerging artists to foster a wider range of stories told in the entertainment and cinema industry.
Not only does the ABFF feature a slate of films, it also includes business seminars, panel discussions with filmmakers and actors, workshops on financing, auditioning, and showrunning, with short film competitions and parties going into the night.
Films include The Flea, an Official Selection of the 2018 American Black Festival, which is a comedy about the day in the life of a flea market manager, who must deal with customers, vendors and his boss, as he struggles to survive one more day on the job. Whitney, an unflinching documentary on the legendary singer’s tragic life. 1970’s classic, Superfly, now has a remake from music video director, Director X.
