Tickets are now available for the 4th biennial Haiti Film Fest, sponsored the Haiti Cultural Exchange (HCX), showcasing the authentic soul of Haiti and its Diaspora through the lens of film.
Established in 2011, HCX’s Haiti Film Fest highlights emerging talent in Haitian communities, and features provocative and innovative storytelling through over 25 narrative films, documentaries, feature-length projects and short films that depict the diversity, depth and vibrant spirit of contemporary Haitian cinema.
The upcoming festival will take place May 11 – May 14, during Haitian Heritage Month in venues throughout Brooklyn, along with a schedule of panel discussions and networking receptions.
The festival kicks off on May 11, with an opening night fundraiser and official launch party taking place at Alamo Drafthouse Cinema in Downtown Brooklyn. The evening will also be dedicated to honoring individuals who have made significant contributions to Haitian film and culture, including Award-winning Film Director Arnold Antonin; Celebrated Film and Television Actor Jimmy Jean-Louis; and Filmmaker and Founder of Ayiti Images Rachelle Salnave.
The opening night festivities will also feature The Last Haiti: The Moving Portraits, by Steven Baboun and a sneak peak of the short film Tezin, by Shirley Bruno, in addition to film montages highlighting the accomplishments of our three honorees.
