RESURGENCE: A BLACK FILM FESTIVAL
““Resurgence” Black Film Festival was beautiful!
Thank you to our filmmakers, partners, curator, host and attendees for an incredible evening!
This year’s theme “Resurgence” addressed the collective human experience, in which we’ve all had to overcome something or someone to move us forward and reignite the possibility of a brighter future. We highlighted films that deal with the human complexity of harsh realities, where people are faced with unimaginable things yet remain triumphantly victorious all the same. Featured films showcased the realities of what this past year has meant and how we were still able to find moments of reprise and joy.
ARTISTS OF COLOR
NBAF was proud to work with and support Artists of Color ATL (AOC): “Artist Check-In,” an online interview style show, where Darrell Grant of Black Theatre Group, LLC shines a spotlight on the magnificent work of Artists of Color in Atlanta.
AOC regularly broadcasts artist interview segments, new work, upcoming projects and artists can turn to members of the Facebook group for feedback & support.
ELDER’S PROJECT VIRTUAL EXPERIENCE
In partnership with Freedom Park Conservancy, National Black Arts was joined by over 170 attendees for our virtual experience: Sowing the Imagination to commemorate the public art installation by Masud Olufani. Attendees joined from all over the state to learn the richness of David T. Howards legacy and how the elders have sustained its existence today.
