Newark Black Film Festival

NAME OF FESTIVAL: Newark Black Film Festival

SINCE: 1974

WHERE: Newark, New Jersey


Since its inception in 1974, the Newark Museum Black Film Festival (NMBFF)--formerly the NBFF (Newark Black Film Festival)--has become known among its peers as the longest running black film festival in the United States. Throughout the years, it has continued to provide a progressive public forum for hundreds of emerging writers, directors, producers, performers and film buffs who enjoy African American and African Diaspora cinema. Screening in the summer months, the films that are shown reflect the full diversity of the black experience in America, both past and present.

Each film selection encompasses a wide range of cinematic forms and formulas, from documentary to the avant-garde.
