Yearning for more black date flicks? Well, the 12th annual American Black Film Festival is all over the case. The festival will be “Exploring Black Romance and Sexuality in American Cinema” on August 7th – 10th in Los Angeles and hosting the panel discussion, “Can We Get Some Love?”
Founder and producer, Jeff Friday, says they will be exploring the question, “Is Black romance taboo or too hot to handle?”
Reggie Scott, executive director of the festival adds, “There was a more than 20 year gap where there were no major films exploring black love and romance. We left off with Claudine and Mahogany in the 70’s and picked up with Waiting to Exhale and Love Jones in the 90s.”
