For the past 6 years, Capital City Black Film Festival (CCBFF) has taken over the city of Austin on Labor Day weekend. This year will be like no other as CCBFF brings the brightest in Black film to the city! The 7th Capital City Black Film Festival will take place Friday, August 30th – Sunday, September 1st. The festival showcases documentaries, features, shorts, and music videos from talented filmmakers from across the globe. This year, Capital City Black Film Festival is putting a special focus on Black women across the film industry – who remain one of the fastest growing groups in independent film.
“Last year we wrapped one of the most successful years in CCBFF’s history! We want to build on that momentum by increasing the voices of Black women in film who are historically underrepresented,” said CCBFF Executive Director Winston Williams.
“We celebrate the amazing Black women like Viola Davis, Ava Duvernay, Issa Rae, Tina Gordon and Regina King – who continue to break barriers in the industry. Our goal is to inspire the next wave of Black women creators by providing them with the platform to share their stories to our engaged audiences.”
The 2019 festival kicks off Thursday, August 29 with a pre-event kick off party. The festival runs Aug. 30 – Sept. 1 and you can expect a weekend filled with the excitement of Black cinema. You won’t want to miss it!
