Halifax Black Film Festival 2020
Dates: Feb 28 - Mar 1, 2020
Location: Halifax, NS
The 4th annual Halifax Black Film Festival (#HBFF20) marks African Heritage Month with a diverse and meaningful programming as part of TD’s 2020 Black History Month Series. #HBFF20 will kick off with Storm Saulter’s Sprinter (produced by Jada Pinkett Smith) at Park Lane Cineplex and will close with Bernard Attal’s Restless – both films as Atlantic Canadian Premieres.
This year’s festival showcases 28 Films and brings back the HBFF Black Market and Community Program which include panel discussions and masterclasses. Festival-goers can also look forward to a great Kids Program. One of the highlight events is an initiative from The Fabienne Colas Foundation’s Youth & Diversity Program: Being Black in Canada.
Created in 2017 by the Fabienne Colas Foundation (FCF), The Halifax Black Film Festival is dedicated to celebrating the very best in cinematic work dealing with the varied experiences of black people from diverse communities. Its mandate is to provide an opportunity for filmmakers to shine the spotlight on authentic stories that reflect the realities of black experiences.
