4th Annual New Voices in Black Cinema this Weekend

(released 3/26/2014)

Act Now Foundation will present the 4th Annual New Voices in Black Cinema from March 27-30 at the BAM Rose Cinema.

Films produced and starring African American and Latino Diaspora artisans make up this year's lineup of screenings.

New Voices in Black Cinema's festival website further explains what makes this cinematic experience unique.

"Produced in conjunction with and taking place at BAMcinematek, this program is all about choosing excellence over spectacle and daring stories over standard fare as New Voices pushes the gamut of showing how film explores Black society and provides exhibition to new voices, and existing ones, that represent these rich and diverse cultures proudly putting them on display to the masses."

The festival will open with Flex is Kings about two dancers who use their street skills and artistic visions to further their desired goals. The opening film will be a Brooklyn premiere. Additional festival highlights are Aya of Yop City a French film with English subtitles, and a panel with reception entitled "Spotlight On Sisters In Cinema: Making Noise and Getting Heard".

BAM Rose Cinemas is located in the BAM Cultural District, 30 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217.
