The Las Vegas Black Film Festival is quickly becoming one of the premier festivals in such a crowded space. The 3rd Annual Las Vegas Black Film Festival will be held April 28th – May 1st 2016 at the beautiful Mediterranean-themed Suncoast Hotel & Casino. Founded by Ms. Michelle, affectionately known as the “First Lady of Gospel Theatre”, the future looks bright for the festival. Some of the highlights include the High Rollers Pitch Fest which gives festival participants a chance to Pitch or Learn to Pitch their Script or Script idea in front of Industry Professionals. Also, the Actor’s Showdown provides an outlet for actors to compete in a boxing ring for the Heavyweight “Best Actor” title. The winner will also receive the coveted trophy and a lead role in an upcoming film. Of course there will be screenings of shorts, documentaries, and narrative features. Not to mention, Leon will be an honored guest at the 70’s Throwback Party of the year. Lastly, on May 1st, at the Soul Food Sunday Award Brunch, winners of the various categories will be presented with awards. We hope to see you on the Orange carpet!!!
