It’s ‘good’ movie season!
We all love Fall and Winter as the time the prestige films get released for Oscar consideration (presumably).
How about we kick off this season with a film festival? I agree, let’s do it!
More than 80 films will be shown at the first-ever Smithsonian African American Film Festival, presented by the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture.
Screenings and events will be held at three locations during the 4-day festival: National Museum of African American History & Culture; Freer|Sackler; and National Gallery of Art – East Building.
The festival will ‘celebrate African American visual culture and film’ with historic and modern films, and will include post-screening conversations with filmmakers and actors, classes, and ways to exchange ideas about films.
See the full schedule of films here.

Ticket prices vary by event or screening, from FREE to $10-100.
