The four-day celebration will offer more than 60 contemporary and historical films that illuminate the black experience in the United States, as well as a juried competition. In addition to film screenings, the festival will feature discussions with filmmakers and scholars and presentations on filmmaking and editing. Events will take place at the National Museum of African American History and Culture, the Freer|Sackler Galleries and the National Gallery of Art.
