3rd Annual Hamptons Black International Film Festival 9/16-9/18

GreetingsHamptons MouthPiece readers…sorry for the delayed information, this has been an emotional and semi-stressful week. I am pleased to bring you this information in case you were unaware of this special event happening this weekend in the Hamptons. “The Hamptons Black International Film Festival is a four day retreat and international/domestic showcase.  Established because Hollywood has limited platforms and distribution starring people of African descent.  The goal of HBIFF is to educate, inform, and enlighten the community by showcasing films by and for but not limited to people of African descent. HBIFF is dedicated to shorts, feature, and documentaries.  Through a diverse platform, the festival nurtures the growth and development of aspiring artists, and is open to filmmakers, and industry executives.”
This event had its kick off in New York City and will be spending the remaining 3 days in the Hamptons with many of the events taking  place at our beloved Bay Street Theater in Sag Harbor. I am listing the schedule of events, I am excited to attend many of the weekend’s events and my daughter Allura is excited to attend Tracey Moore acting class on Saturday.
