RETURNING AUGUST 2018
JOIN OUR ELIST TO BE NOTIFIED OF OUR OFFICIAL 2018 LAUNCH.
An envied hotbed of technological start-ups and a live music persona renowned the world over, Austin has welcomed its next chapter in the entertainment industry: the Capital City Black Film Festival. The festival’s goal is to bring together talented African Americans involved in media and the film industry.
In 2013, CCBFF kicked off its inaugural year with a two-day screening of independent films expressing the African American experience. In 2014, we staged an even bigger and better event, reaching minds and hearts beyond the U.S. In 2015, we expanded CCBFF's reach with year-round events and opportunities to experience the brilliant works of black artists and filmmakers across the globe. Our 2016 event attracted major film studios, actors and industry professionals in record numbers. We celebrated our 5th Anniversary in 2017.
"The famous community spirit is alive and well in film organizations such as Austin Film Meet, Austin. Women. Film, and Dames in Film, not to mention the granddaddy of it all, Richard Linklater’s Austin Film Society, which hands out — amongst much other support — a yearly moviemaker grant."

The Capital City Black Film Festival screens more than 80 features, shorts and music videos from across the globe with more than 1,000 filmmakers, film fans and entertainment professionals in attendance annually.
