The Rhode Island Black Film Festival is the first of its kind in the Ocean State. Sharing stories on film dedicated to screening and promoting films about the diverse cultures of the African diaspora
Our theme for this, our 3rd year, is Empowerment – the empowerment of women in front of and behind the camera, in business and the workplace.
The Rhode Island Black Film Festival gives a voice to diverse cultures. We welcome films by and about Black, Afro-Caribbean and Afro-Latino communities both local and worldwide. With a varied lineup of narrative, documentary, feature and films, the Rhode Island Black Film Festival features emerging filmmakers, actors and film industry insiders sharing their passion for the artistry of cinema.
The Rhode Island Black Film Festival – where social justice and cinema take a seat.
