LHAAFF Announces Opening & Closing Festival Films
The Langston Hughes African American Film Festival has a knack for introducing Seattle audiences to up-and-coming African American directors – today Seattle, tomorrow Sundance! Alrick Brown (KINYARWANDA), Charles Officer (NURSE.FIGHTER.BOY) and Ava Duvernay (I Will Follow) have all been part of past festival events.
The filmmakers behind this year's opening and closing night film events, Matthew A. Cherry and Andrew Dosunmu, will not disappoint and both will be in attendance. All screenings and panel discussions for the 9th Annual Langston Hughes African American Film Festival will be held at the recently reopened Langston Hughes Performing Arts Center in Seattle's Central District. This 9th Annual Langston Hughes African American Film Festival is dedicated to esteemed colleague Mr. Charles W. Rolland who passed on March 12, 2012.
