About The Classic International Black Cinema Series
A film series specifically designed as a vehicle to expose the community to the vast artistic value black film has had throughout the years. The goal is to appeal to as diverse a population as possible and further the appreciation of Black cinema.
Curator and host, Felix Curtis, came to Charlotte from the Oakland/San Francisco Bay area where he curated “The San Francisco Black Film Festival” and “Black Filmworks”, the annual film festival component of the Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame, where he later served as Executive Director.
