    When is the “American White Film Festival” take place? Oh, nevermind, that would be deemed racist, but as long as it says “Black”, it’s not racist!

      Steve Lewis:

      why do you think it is called the American Black Film Festival? Could it be because of Hollywood has an exclusionary law is still in use today when it comes to African Americas in the Film Industry? Do your history. Find out your American History.

  2. Steve Lewis says:

    @ Larry: There are so many film festivals that cater to white audiences that there are no need to label them.

    Larry, there is nothing stopping you from starting your very own “American White Film Festival.” Yeah, you might get some criticism for thinking that white people in America need their own film festival (after all, out of the 50 top-earning movies in theaters this weekend, at least forty of them are starring white people; only two star or are about black people). But, hey, maybe you have a unique vision for white filmmaking, or maybe you don’t feel that white people are well-represented in film. Go for it!

    As long as your event doesn’t feature or present Nazi war propaganda or KKK home movies in a positive light, I think there’s room for yet one more film festival on the circuit.
