T. Marie King Black Lens Programmer


Hey fam, it’s that time of the year – Black Lens Film Week is back, and you’re invited to the ultimate celebration from February 20-25th at the Sidewalk Cinema! Get ready for a week-long celebration of Black cinema that’s bringing all the vibes. It’s a family reunion, a cultural feast, and a whole lot of fun.

Black Lens is all about showcasing the brilliance of films directed by, produced by, and/or starring Black filmmakers. Get ready for stories that reflect the beauty and diversity of the Black experience, both then and now. Let’s come together, vibe with the stories, and celebrate the Black/African American culture. Your presence at Black Lens Film Week makes it real, makes it family, just like it’s always been.

We want you there because you, our amazing audience, are the heartbeat of our success, you make the magic happen.

Mark those calendars and guess what? Saturday is extra special with the Kickback hosting our Happy Hour! It’s about to be lit!

Thanks for being a part of our journey. See you there!
