In January 2023, the Denton Black Film Festival showcased 98 exceptional films. With such a wide array of genres to choose from, we divided the films into 8 respective film blocks to make it easier for our guests to navigate our plethora of screenings.
The film block “Spirits in the Dark” was our free screening in the horror genre for our goosebumps lovers! The film block included two thrilling narrative feature-length films and a music video. We’re turning the spotlight on the festival’s past filmmakers that are perfect for a Halloween movie night! Available for streaming on listed platforms today.
