About this event

Join us for a weekend of history at Martin University! We will be screening 3 films in the Fr. Boniface Hardin Gathertorium and host food trucks at the event.

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:
