Our inaugural year in 2013 at the Omni Hotel and Stateside at the Paramount was a resounding success. A heartwarming turnout, incredible films, and industry names like Julius Tennon and Deborah Riley Draper made our first festival beyond memorable.

2014 brought exciting changes: new venues and partners in the Palmer Events Center and the Brass House Jazz Club, amazing guests, and even more great films. With dancing, theatre, art exhibits and more, Year Two was even bigger than our first.
