July 30-August 2, 2015


Now in its fourth year, the BlackStar Film Festival is a four-day celebration showcasing artistically innovative and genre-defying films by and about the global black experience.

Nicknamed “The Black Sundance” by Ebony magazine, this local festival highlights independent films from emerging directors, producers and writers — all by and about people throughout the African diasporic experience.

Again this year, the majority of film screenings are scheduled to take place at International House in University City. Additional venues and the full festival lineup will be announced shortly. So, stay tuned for details.
