Black Cinematic Brilliance is going fully online – for the first time. This summer, for the 17th edition of the Seattle Black Film Festival (formerly Langston Hughes African American Film Festival) you can tune in from your couch! July 10-12, 2020, join LANGSTON, the non profit committed to Cultivating Black Brilliance, and Seattle-based online independent film screening and music platform Couch-a-thon, as they team up to bring a fully online 2020 festival experience!
LANGSTON and the festival team worked with the community to select a new name to roll out in 2020. A name that more clearly represented LANGSTON’s Seattle Black Film Festival’s goal of ‘Cultivating Black Brilliance.’ “We were preparing to pour our energy into expressing the new festival name and celebrating that with our audiences, but in the end, an even bigger opportunity emerged.” said festival director, Andrea Stuart-Lehalle. As early as March, the SBFF team started looking for an alternate solution, in case in-person gatherings were further restricted due to COVID-19.
This year’s festival will feature 32 films from across the diaspora, and together they weave a weekend-long program of inspiration, celebration and good humor. The three-day festival, shortened from the typical four days, will feature its signature program of film screenings, panel discussions with filmmakers and community members and workshops to show the flipside of the industry.
