The Honolulu African American Film Festival celebrates Black History Month with films directed by women that highlight African Americans in the arts, along with a vital conversation about the #MeToo movement. This year, we will continue to screen black cinema throughout the year—in June a new program will focus on Juneteenth and August will bring Black Futures Month.
Special thanks to our African American Film Festival Committee: Daphne Barbee-Wooten, Akiemi Glenn, David Goldberg, Marsha McFadden, John Nichols, Tadia Rice, Sandra Simms, and Sharon Yarbrough.
Opening red-carpet event: Feb 3 at 6:30pm
