International Black Film Festival of Nashville, September 29th-October 3rd, 2010

Nashville, Tennessee may be known more for its music scene, but you can certainly get a film fix as well at the International Black Film Festival of Nashville.

The IBFF of Nashville strives to insure culturally accurate depictions in film with special emphasis on providing a forum for unheard, unseen and unknown viewpoints, and to showcase the rich creativity and diversity found in communities of color locally, nationally and internationally.

And if you’d like to spend a few weeks in Nashville, you can come early and take part in the African Street Festival from September 17th to the 19th,  held at the Tennessee State University campus in celebration of African culture through singing, food and poetry.
