Now in its tenth year, the Dallas Black Film Festival is focused on a major celebration the weekend of August 24 to 26. They've just confirmed this year's guest speaker will be former Public Enemy member and current Illuminati conspiracy theorist, second degree black belt Professor Griff.
What Griff will talk about when he emerges from his secret dwelling -- well, only he knows, but it will likely touch on the theme of this year's fest, Blaxsploitation.
There will be an independent film contest, a children's film fest, a black movie poster showcase, memorabilia and a dissection of the Blaxsploitation genre, through past, present and future. DBFF will be held at The Act of Change Institute of Cultural Arts (3200 S. Lancaster Rd., suite 623), and at the Pan-African Connection (828 Fourth Ave.). Tickets range from $2 to $25.
