The 10th Annual BlackStar Film Festival

The BlackStar Film Festival is an annual celebration of the visual and storytelling traditions of the African diaspora and global communities of color — showcasing films by Black, Brown, and Indigenous people from around the world. As we continue to navigate the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, our 10th festival will once again be a (mostly) virtual experience.
