4th Annual Indianapolis Black Documentary Film Festival (IBDFF)

Friday, August 4th – Sunday August 6th at 2186 N Sherman Dr. Indianapolis, IN 46218

About: “The IBDFF seeks to create a venue which filmmakers, storytellers, producers, and members of the film community can come together to appreciate showcased films. These films will focus on African-American history and issues that are pertinent to the Diaspora.

We support black film survival and inspiration to the public as worthy examples of admiration and emulation. Our Black History Month event is an effort to provide this opportunity by screening the following films:
