About American Black Film Festival (ABFF)
The American Black Film Festival (ABFF) is a five-day event dedicated to bringing awareness of entertainment content made by and about people of African descent to a worldwide audience. 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.
The ABFF was originally conceived as a destination event. Since its inception in 1997, the festival has been held in Acapulco, Miami, Los Angeles and New York City. Founder Jeff Friday envisioned the ABFF as a vehicle to promote diversity in the film and television industry. Today it is widely recognized as a major conduit for bringing new Black talent to the forefront, both in front of and behind the camera. The festival is considered the nation’s largest gathering of Black film and TV enthusiasts, last year drawing an attendance of approximately 13,000. The 20th annual ABFF will be held in Miami, Florida, June 15-19, 2016. Founding and presenting sponsor HBO®.
