Filmmakers and/or film students and professors interested in showcasing their film work at the South Florida Black Film Festival can submit their work or inquiries to Dr. Joan Cartwright at firstname.lastname@example.org. Criteria for film submissions: The film must be based on Black migration in, out, and throughout Florida; length should be either a 15-minute short or a feature film; time period between 1619 and 2019.
The South Florida Black Film Festival, hosted by the African-American Research Library and Cultural Center, takes place from 12 – 8PM on Thursday, December 19, 2019, a date honoring the 144th anniversary of Dr. Carter G. Woodson’s birth, who founded ASALH in 1915. The free, public event is created in partnership with the ASALH South Florida Branch.
