African American artistic excellence in filmmaking is nothing new. Have
you heard of Oscar Micheaux or Gordon Parks? These two forebears

communities that look like them. Festival Film Works continues the
tradition, in education and celebration of our artistic excellence yesterday, today and tomorrow.
