The Detroit Black Film Festival will bring 74 films and stellar events to the Motor City.

When the Detroit Black Film Festival launched in 2020, it consisted of 30 short and feature films that were presented virtually in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.

It wasn’t easy then, but now it’s a holiday. The fourth annual event, which runs from Wednesday to Sunday, features 74 independent films, as well as special events designed to bring together current and emerging filmmakers.

This year’s theme, Cinema + Cuisine + Cocktails, sounds optimistic because, according to its co-founder, it is.

“It really does feel like a celebration, especially when we not only get tougher in theater, but we get to talk to each other, celebrate films, celebrate filmmakers in a space and place where we can have a dialogue about community and culture and very specific problems within the African American community. It’s really cool,” says Marshall Favors, who opened the festival with her husband, Lazar Favors.
