Hollywood Unlocked was on the carpet for the largest black film festival in America, the 2019 Pan African Film Festival.
The scene was set as the Pan African Film Festival gathered a crowd all weekend for movies, fun, and entertainment at the Baldwin Hills Crenshaw Plaza.
Each night, films were shown at the local Cinemark which celebrated and shed light on films created by people of African descent.
On Saturday night, stars like Danny Glover, Ben Guillory, and Glynn Turman came out in support of the film “The Robeson Effect.” The documentary follows the story of Glover and Guillory as they made their way into acting leading up to being co-founders of the Robey Theatre Company.
Sunday night which was closing night was all about Atone which features Jaqueline Fleming, Columbus Short, Stephen “Sheamus” Farrelly and more was all about a mother who lost her will to live and soon found that she indeed did have something to live for.
According to the Pan African Film Festival website, this week has always been dedicated to;
“racial tolerance through the exhibition of film, art and creative expression. It is PAFF’s goal to present and showcase the broad spectrum of Black creative works, particularly those that reinforce positive images and help destroy negative stereotypes.”
There are so many films that were played during this festival, so head to their website to see when you can catch any one of them!
