This year’s Capital City Black Film Festival will feature the work of 67 filmmakers who will have their movies screened as part of the eighth annual Austin-based fest.
New short films, documentaries, and feature-length movies from filmmakers all over the country will be shown during the virtual festival Dec. 4-6.
Four Austin filmmakers are among those whose films will screen:
- Chris Haywood’s “Hashtags and Halos” is a short documentary that follows artist Chris Rogers through his journey of creating a large mural in Austin that inspires people to wake up to the reality black people face in America.
- Ali Hopson’s “Bajo La Luna” is a compilation of dance solos and choreographed works by Ballet East Dance Company during the COVID-19 shutdown.
- Isaac Rowe’s feature film “Man in Me: The Documentary” invites us on a heartfelt journey exploring boyhood and fatherhood, while recounting stories of pain and profound healing.
- Ya’Ke Smith‘s “The Pandemic Chronicles” talks about love and grief during quarantine.
