Online events, such as the BlackStar Live! morning show and any live panels, do not require online registration — with the exception of BlackStar Pitch. These events will be streamed freely from BlackStar’s Facebook page and our website, with the exception of our Opening and Closing Night Parties, which stream on our website and Twitch. Check the individual pages on the schedule for more information: blackstarfest.org/schedule.
BlackStar Pitch: The BlackStar Pitch Session on August 19th is a special event for invited guests only. A private URL will be made available to registered attendees only, who will be composed of Festival Pass holders, BlackStar members, and industry.
The Philly Drive-In: Three films this year, Be Water, The Forty-Year-Old Version, and Miss Juneteenth, are only playing at special in-person drive-in screenings organized in partnership with the City of Philadelphia Parks and Recreation department. These films will not be available on the streaming platform and require separate registration, a link to which can be found on each page.
A select few Special Events may be announced ahead of the festival and these events may have unique ticketing and admission policies. Please visit blackstarfest.org for the latest information.
