Project Details
1. Please describe the essence of this project. The ABFF film program is primarily composed of world premieres of narrative, documentary and short films . As such, it is the leading film festival in the world for African American and urban content. Since its inception, the ABFF has showcased more than 600 films, rewarding and redefining artistic excellence in independent filmmaking. With diversity and social responsibility at its core, the festival supports aspiring actors, filmmakers and industry executives in unprecedented ways, and has generated a tremendous amount of goodwill in Hollywood. In addition to its cinematic showcases, the ABFF nurtures its attendees in a variety of disciplines, offering panel discussions, workshops and symposium hosted by leading media companies. Upscale entertainment and exclusive social events complete the festival experience. Each year, the ABFF attracts approximately 3,000 artists, executives and film fans, providing a strategic vehicle for companies to reach this trendsetting and influential audience. Top-tier corporations have engaged in partnerships with the festival to promote their products, services and multicultural initiatives. This support fuels the growth of the festival and furthers the evolution of the Black independent film community. The 17th annual American Black Film Festival will be held from June 19-23, 2013 in Miami, FL. The festival’s website is www.abff.com.

ORGANIZATIONAL HISTORY The American Black Film Festival (ABFF) is a four-day retreat and international film market dedicated to strengthening the independent Black filmmaking community. Formerly known as the Acapulco Black Film Festival, it was founded in 1997 by Jeff Friday, President & CEO, Film Life Inc.; Byron Lewis, Chairman & CEO, UniWorld Group, Inc.; and Warrington Hudlin, President, The Black Filmmaker Foundation. The festival was born out of their shared belief in the need to stimulate independent Black film development and promote cultural diversity within the film industry. With limited access to, images of, and opportunities for Black filmmakers in Hollywood, the ABFF created a platform to showcase the cinematic work of independent artists of vision and emerging talent. Having screened more than six hundred films (feature-length, shorts and documentaries) since its inception, the festival questions, redefines, discovers and explores artistic excellence through sharing stories beyond the stereotypical portrayals of Black and urban lifestyles. The ABFF is committed to nurturing filmmakers in a variety of disciplines. Through competitive film showcases and innovative annual programming initiatives (including panel discussions, workshops and seminars), the festival attracts and helps develop top-tier talent. We at the ABFF work hard to create a unique environment where both accomplished industry professionals and the aspiring are able to meet and form interpersonal relationships key to business success. With an attendance that has increased each year the ABFF is the leading networking and empowerment event for Blacks in the film industry. The ABFF is held annually each summer in a tropical resort district. Originally hosted in Acapulco, Mexico – from 1997 to 2001 – in 2002, it relocated to Miami Beach, Florida, offering the festival audience improved facilities. It was renamed the American Black Film Festival. That year marked a second important transition when Film Life, Inc., acquired sole rights to the ABFF. Through the support of Film Life, Inc., and a wide variety of corporations, the American Black Film Festival forges ahead with its mission to impel the Black film community forward.

American Black Film Festival Founder Forges New Path For Black Film - Entertainment & Culture - EBONY

jeff friday american black film festival black mbas african american films

The Swahili word “Kujichagulia” comes to mind when describing entertainment executive Jeff Friday. Translated to English, Friday has unabashedly used self-determination to bring his visions for Black entertainment content to life. As a graduate of Howard University and New York University's Steinhardt School of Business, the entrepreneur has been making quiet leaps and bounds throughout the often gregarious, cut-throat entertainment industry. Friday’s savvy entrepreneurial skills and fearless spirit brought him from his first position as president of UniWorld Films in 1996 to his current title as CEO of Film Life, Inc. Through his innovative company, Friday offers a variety of Black films, television series, and digital entertainment to audiences hungry for a multicultural niche that Hollywood has left void for decades. Friday creates new opportunities for women and multicultural artists “ "Because Hollywoodn’t"; as his company’s mantra says, and prefers working outside the studio system, which is notorious for its nepotism and boys club-type environment. The Black Movie Awards, which Friday if creator and executive producer of, has given Black filmmakers and talent a reason to gather in celebration to acknowledge the gifted individuals within our community who rarely, if ever, get their dues. As for the fledgling film hopefuls, Friday has gotten them covered too through Film Life’s Foundation, a non-profit organization that the entertainment executive established to provide scholarships and other additional education resources. Most recently, Film Life, Inc. held a Strikes celebrity bowling event hosted by actress Nia Long in order to raise funds for the Film Life Foundation, as well as the general scholarship fund at the John H. Johnson School of Communications at Howard University. As the founder of the American Black Film Festival, which is now in its 16th year, Friday makes sure that the excellent films being created by the artists are premiered in a setting comparable to the well-known festivals that usually come off more whitewashed than not. Annually

February 4, 2013 Melanie Sharee American Black Film Festival 584 Broadway Suite 1004 New York, NY 10012 Dear Ms. Sharee: On behalf of Miami-Dade County, the Office of Film and Entertainment is delighted to again support the American Black Film Festival. The ABFF is one of the most prestigious multi-cultural film festivals internationally. We are excited again about working with the ABFF to help it achieve the noterity it deserves. We are proud that this exciting festival resides in our backyard. Film and entertainment is being recognized as one of the fastest growing industries worldwide. Miami-Dade County has targeted the film and entertainment industry as an economic engine that continues to grow. Location filming in 2012 contributed over $250 million to the local economy and productions directspend into Miami-Dade County. As more independent filmmakers are calling Miami-Dade their home, their contribution to the local economy is increasing. It is not only dollars that increase locally, but the diverse culture that independent filmmakers bring to the art. The ABFF contributes to nurturing independent filmmakers and that assists to establish Miami-Dade County as a mecca for this multicultural art form. Miami-Dade County is interested in continuing our active participation with the American Black Film Festival, and we look forward to helping to promote its growth and that of the film & entertainment industry. Sincerely,

Sandy Lighterman, Film and Entertainment Commissioner Miami-Dade County Office of Film and Entertainment
