BlackStar Film Festival is an annual celebration of the visual and storytelling traditions of the African diaspora and of global communities of color, showcasing films by Black, Brown and Indigenous artists from around the world. 

This year’s screenings will take place at three locations on Broad Street in Philadelphia — including the Perelman Theatre at the Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts — and many films will screen more than once throughout the week. All films will also be available to stream online around the world. 

Featuring dozens of world and North American premieres and films from more than 30 countries globally, this is a lineup you don’t want to miss.
