A still from Chris Haywood’s documentary “Hashtags and Halos” about Austin artist Chris Rogers. The film was included in the 2020 Capital City Black Film Festival.

After going virtual in 2020, the Capital City Black Film Festival will this year present hybrid festival in December with a mix of live and virtual events and screenings.

This year’s theme is Triumph, and festival organizers are now accepting submissions.

“It’s exciting to open our festival with a renewed sense of pride in who we are and how far we’ve come. Black people are not a monolith but what connects us most is our ability to rise – collectively and individually,” said CCBFF Executive Director Winston G. Williams.

“We are excited to welcome a range of film submissions, but our goal is to deliver a moving, deeply inspiring festival that recognizes the resilience of Black people, our complexities and the beauty in our stories.”
