MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) -- The American Black Film Festival returns to Miami Beach to recognize the contributions of black directors, writers and actors to the film industry.
Now in its 15th year, the festival is one of the most prestigious festivals honoring black cinema. The festival includes four days of film screenings, networking, workshops for both actors and directors and panel discussions.
"Boyz n the Hood" director John Singleton will discuss the impact the 1991 film had on the film industry. Comedian and director Keenen Ivory Wayans will be honored for his achievements in television and on the big screen.
The festival runs Wednesday through Saturday and allows for emerging filmmakers to showcase their work through short-film and documentary competitions.
