The hottest and highest rated show on TV was the second to garner an ABFF watch party. February’s season premiere of BET’s Being Mary Jane drew a packed room for a private networking event and screening to watch the drama of ABFF alum and TV star Gabrielle Union.

With watch parties scheduled monthly to promote the festival, those interested in attending ABFF are encouraged to register while space lasts at ABFF.com.
