About the American Black Film Festival (ABFF)
The American Black Film Festival (ABFF) is an annual event dedicated to showcasing quality film and television content by and about people of African descent, and supporting emerging artists to diversify the images and storytellers working in the entertainment industry. Annually held during the month of June, the ABFF is committed to the belief that Black artists deserve the same opportunities as their mainstream counterparts. It is recognized as the premier pipeline for Black talent in front of and behind the camera. The festival is comprised of five action-packed days of films, engaging panels, networking events and more…from the star-studded opening night screening to the exciting “Best of Festival” Awards.
Beginning in 1997, the festival was held in Acapulco, and then in Miami, Los Angeles, New York City and returned to Miami again in 2016. Founder Jeff Friday envisioned the ABFF as a vehicle to promote diversity in the film and television industry. The festival is today recognized as the nation’s largest gathering of Black film and TV enthusiasts, with approximately 10,000 attendees. The 21st annual ABFF will be held in Miami, Florida, June 14-18, 2017. The Founding and Presenting Sponsor is HBO®.
