The 10th Annual BlackStar Film Festival is here! BlackStar Film Festival is an annual celebration of the visual and storytelling traditions of the African diaspora and global communities of color — showcasing films by Black, Brown, and Indigenous people from around the world. The festival will take place virtually August 4–8, 2021, with select in-person screenings in Philadelphia, and include narrative features and shorts, documentary features and shorts, and experimental films. Join us at the Mann on the final day of the festival, August 8, 2021, for a full day of in-person screenings in our TD Pavilion.
