We're Celebrating Our 5th Anniversary! | August 17-20, 2017 | Austin Convention Center

Join us in Austin from Thursday, August 17th through Sunday, August 20th to help us celebrate 5 YEARS of showcasing the Best New Black Independent Films from the Brightest Minds in Filmmaking! Thanks to our Filmmaker Family, film fans, industry supporters and sponsors, CCBFF 2016 was a huge success. Everything you loved about the Festival will be back this year, and we've added new events where you can meet, learn from and network with people who are making waves in front of and behind the camera. 

Whether you like all-access or á la carte, the Capital City Black Film Festival offers fun and excitement that fits your interest, schedule and spend. Pick a pass, and start planning your weekend!
