ActNow: New Voices in Black Cinema Festival Presented at BAM

ActNow Foundation, in conjunction with BAMcinématek and NYC Council Member Letitia James, kick off their programming year on February 16th—20th with New Voices in Black Cinema, the second annual five-day event reflecting the wide spectrum of views and themes within the African diaspora community in Brooklyn and beyond.

A home to ActNow film screenings since August 2009 (including last summer’s New York premiere of The Wonder Year- Kenneth Price’s documentary profile of Grammy Award-winning producer 9th Wonder), BAMcinématek continues its partnership to provide exposure to new and compelling voices in Black independent cinema.

“We’re excited to continue our partnership with BAMcinématek,” says Aaron Ingram, Executive Director of ActNow Foundation. “Offering filmmakers the opportunity to present their stories in New Voices in Black Cinema and in our home borough allows us engage movie lovers from all walks of life with the diversity, inspiration, beauty, and complexity of films of the African diaspora.”

For tickets go to or visit the BAMcinématek box office at 30 Lafayette St, Brooklyn, NY 11217. Call 718.636.4100 ext 1 for more details.
