Toronto, December 20, 2013 – The 2nd Annual Toronto Black Film Festival (TBFF) will run from February 11 to 16, 2014 and will be presented by Global Toronto.
The Toronto Black Film Festival (TBFF) is dedicated to celebrating and presenting the very best in cinematic work of Black filmmakers and talent from Canada and around the globe. Our mandate is to fill a void by providing the opportunity for filmmakers from all ethnic groups, to share and promote authentic stories, which reflect the true reality of Black people throughout the world.
TBFF showcases the most outstanding and amazing Black films while creating a space to debate major cultural, social and socio-economic issues. The festival offers screenings, concerts, panel discussions, exhibits, workshops, conferences and opportunities to meet creators and speakers from Canada and around the world.
Together with its strong local team, the great support of Global Toronto and a partnership with its sister festival, Montreal International Film Festival (presented by Global Montreal) that celebrates their
10-year anniversary in 2014. The 2nd edition of the Toronto Black Film Festival will definitely be even more exciting and successful with more films screenings, special events and some celebrity guests; such as guest speaker, New-York Times best-selling author Stedman Graham, and South African Juno Award winning singer Lorraine Klaasen. The TBFF will be Toronto’s biggest celebration of Black History Month through film!!!
