The Capital City Black Film Festival

While Black people across the diaspora have experienced some of life’s greatest trials, there’s one common thread that connects us – our resilience. In 2021, Capital City Black Film Festival (CCBFF) will elevate the stories centered on the beautifully, complex lives of Black people with a focus on love, perseverance and ultimately joy. We are celebrating our wins and our ability to TRIUMPH.

CCBFF 2021 will be held Friday, Dec. 3 to Sunday, Dec. 5 in-person in Austin, TX and virtually from wherever you are! We will later announce special guests, panelists and festival programming.
