The Calgary Black Film Festival recently announced the lineup of its second annual event. After an incredibly successful first event, CBFF is returning to amplify the works of Black filmmakers in Alberta. Unlike the previous entirely-digital event, this year’s festival will be a hybrid of in-person and online activities running May 26-29.
Alongside the mainstage film screenings, festival attendees will also have access to in-person and online panel discussions and presentations. One such visual offering being presented at the festival this year is the collection of works from the Fabienne Colas Foundation’s Being Black in Canada program.
The program supported a cohort of 35 Canadian filmmakers in the creation of various documentary shorts, all ranging between 8 and 10 minutes in length. Grant Stovel recently chatted with Shae Kubur, who shared more on the film festival and the works being presented as part of the Being Black in Canada program.
