Columbus Black International Film Festival
This weekend, opens the first Columbus Black International Film Festival, in central Ohio, highlighting black filmmakers, both locally and nationally. The festival was created and organized by Cristyn Steward, also a filmmaker, who some of you may remember from meeting earlier this spring during the Wex screenings of Raoul Peck’s film, I Am Not Your Negro. The festival opens Friday, August 4, at the Wexner Center for the Arts, featuring keynote speaker, Mark Cummings Sr., and includes two short films, Heroes of Color: The Harlem Hellfighters (David Heredia) and Dr. Race: Practicing Medicine While Black (Micah Autry), and film-length film, Holy Hustle (Mark Cummings Sr.).
