Four years of celebrating stories from the black experience

For four years in a row, DBFF has been committed to "coloring up" the film festival scene, by offering a platform that showcases filmmakers and films that tell diverse, dynamic stories. As we've expanded our festival reach into music, art and performance, our audience has continued to grow into a loyal committed following that we are thrilled to continue to serve annually.
