February 28 – March 1, 2020
The 4th annual Halifax Black Film Festival (#HBFF20) marks African Heritage Month with a diverse and meaningful programming, February 28 – March 1, as part of TD’s 2020 Black History Month Series. #HBFF20 will kick offwith Storm Saulter’s Sprinter (produced by Jada Pinkett Smith) at Park Lane Cineplex and will close with Bernard Attal’s Restless – both films as Atlantic Canadian Premieres.
This year’s festival showcases 28 Films and brings back the HBFF Black Market and Community Program which include panel discussionsand masterclasses. Festival-goers can also look forward to a great Kids Program. One of the highlight events is an initiative from The Fabienne Colas Foundation’s Youth & Diversity Program: Being Black in Canada.
“The HBFF is needed in Halifax now more than ever!” said Fabienne Colas, President and Founder of the Halifax Black Film Festival. “We created the Halifax Black Film Festival (HBFF) in order to showcase filmmakers who otherwise wouldn’t be seen or heard in Halifax. We are proud to be back with a great variety of films and events celebrating African Heritage Month in a meaningful way by going beyond ‘awareness’ with concrete ‘actions’ to foster the inclusion of diversity off and on camera! The HBFF is more than ever looking to the future by
empowering the next generation of black filmmakers.”
The 4th edition of Halifax Black Film Festival, created by the Fabienne Colas Foundation, is co-presented by TD Bank in collaboration with Global News.
