Black Film Fest ATL (BFF-ATL) is a niche market film festival held annually during the final week of Summer (3rd week in September) on the Southside of Atlanta, Georgia. Founded in 2018 by an award-winning independent Atlanta-based filmmaker, this non-profit organization serves as a conduit for feature films of multicultural diaspora and provides a creative environment where minority filmmakers can showcase their latest creations to diverse audiences in hopes of attracting reputable producers, sales agents, aggregators, and acquisition executives of movie studios, cable / tv networks, production companies, and streaming service platforms.

Aside from exhibiting non-studio produced films, the primary goal of  BFF-ATL is to assist in the growth and the development of independent filmmakers seeking to further satisfy their creative prowess, thus earning the moniker “A Filmmaker’s Festival”.   As such, the Annual Black Film Fest ATL hopes to attract talented new and experienced indie filmmakers along with an impressive network of film industry movers and shakers.

Showcasing Independent Feature Films, Shorts, Pitches and Comedy to the Southside of Atlanta


The success of any film first depends on its viewing audience. Most often, feature films are the displayed for large audience the first time at film festivals. Audience engagement is always lively and filled with questions, answers, and the sharing of ideas. A further benefit is the knowledge brought to these sessions by guest experts and in some cases the filmmakers, who assist in translating the information from the film into daily life in our community.
