Independent Black Film Festival
Getting ready to celebrate its fourth year, the Independent Black Film Festival is announcing its call for entries. IBFF started in January 2003, when a group of first-time directors screened their films at Magic Johnson's Loews's Theatre in Atlanta. Today, IBFF has expanded into a year-round support system for new filmmakers. True to its roots, the festival is still organized and programmed by filmmakers - mainly IBFF alumni. Last year, the festival was pleased to host the southeast premiere to sell out crowds of the Oscar Award Winner (Best Foreign Film) "TSOTSI" at the Atlantic Station. The festival committee is pleased to have helped three features and five shorts receive distribution deals.
