The Hollywood Black Film Festival returns for its 6th anniversary event, June 22 – 27, unveiling 77 films in Los Angeles.
“Over the past five years we have experienced consistent growth in the number of competition submissions, as well as unparallel support from the Hollywood community,” said HBFF Founder, Kersey-Henley. “We continue to expand our slate of festival offerings with the debut this year of our HBFF Industry Marketplace & Job Fair, an opportunity for attendees to meet with human resources executives, and find out about industry-related businesses, products and services.” The HBFF Industry Marketplace & Job Fair is free and open to the public on Saturday, June 26 at the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.
Films screening in the competitive categories represent 31 World Premieres, 14 West Coast Premieres and 5 Los Angeles Premieres. “HBFF 2004 rings in our sixth year of hosting this competition that to date has received noted accolades and high marks from industry professionals and the media at large,” said Executive Director and Programming Director, Jacqueline Blaylock. “In just six short years we have introduced the public to close to 300 film and video projects showcasing some of the most spectacular images and stories created by filmmakers of color.”
