SAN FRANCISCO BLACK FILM FESTIVAL
MORE THAN ENTERTAINMENT
PROMOTING TOURISM, ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT, WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT &
SOCIAL JUSTICE

SAN FRANCISCO-
June is "Black Music Month" with Juneteenth and Father's Day being celebrated, and among the celebrations, the San Francisco Black Film Festival XXIII, "Continues the Legacy, Healing the World One Film at A Time," June 17-20, 2021.

"Just one sip of our partners' "Roots & Vines" wine from the Motherland is an experiential amalgamation of so many positive themes from joy, to social justice, to economic empowerment, unity and more," said Cree Ray, San Francisco Black Film Festival Co-Director . "CEO of Roots & Vines Trading Company," Jennifer White was a speaker on a panel for "Live Talk @SFBFF Art and Trade in Africa " at last year's festival co-led by my dearly missed father (Kali O'Ray) with my stepmother Katera Crossley. He was a proponent for all things in the African Diaspora that lead to empowerment and equity. This year, we are pleased to have "Roots & Vines" South African wines as the official wine of the San Francisco Black Film Festival.
At 'Roots & Vines Trading Company," we are focusing on the opening of our pop-up store this week at Mission Valley Mall in San Diego, but it is always a great time to find a way lift a glass of cheer for organizations like the San Francisco Black Film festival that are committed to economic empowerment among the African Diaspora while opening ways of better understanding for all races of people," said Jennifer White, M.Ed. "We can trace our economic leap into the waters of commerce to Mrs. Mathabo Kunene of Durban, who also participated in last year's panel making her continuing call to come to South Africa and do business."

"As a business owner, it is great to see how the San Francisco Black Film Festival is more than just entertainment," said Bivett Brackett, CEO of the Big Black Brunch (https://www.facebook.com/bigblackbrunch/), a sponsor. "For starters the San Francisco Black Film Festival demonstrates economic empowerment by giving visibility to filmmakers, actors, technicians. Also, It is platform for training youth as seen by the partnership with the National Coalition of 100 Black Women San Francisco Chapter's Doris Ward Workforce Development Employment and Training Program over the past three years."


SAY WHAT, MO'NIQUE?


Iconic comedian Mo'Nique is having her say about appearances.

And so is director Jennifer Holness with her film "Subjects of Desire."

Are they both saying the same thing?

Or are they coming from different sides of the "Black is Beautiful" coin. You decide. Click Mo'Nique's photo to see what she is say'in in Yahoo News.

Click the video of "Subjects of Desire" to see & hear what Holness has to say.

"Subjects of Desire" will be featured at the San Francisco Black Film Festival, June 17-20....and just a little shout out for June being "Black Music Month"--winner of four of twenty-three Grammy Awards India Arie is in "Subjects of Desire."

Speaking of Black Music Month, don't forget @SFBFF's partner SFJAZZ' June 10th film screening "Music in Monk Time!"
