Capital City Black Film Festival (CCBFF) exists to provide burgeoning filmmakers from across the nation an opportunity to showcase their work in one of the top cities in the United States for independent filmmakers, Austin Texas. CCBFF is dedicated to films written, directed or produced by Black filmmakers or films with Black actors in principle roles. CCBFF also educates filmmakers on the vast resources available to them in Austin, and in Texas.

The inaugural year of the Capital Black Film Festival (CCBFF) was an awesome experience for Black filmmakers. Austin and Texas opened the door and welcomed CCBFF on to the stage and the performance was outstanding! CCBFF welcomed filmmakers from around the country and Canada. In the first year, CCBFF had over 300 attendees. Producers, actors and agents shared valuable information with attendees. The Get InVested Party was Off The Chain! Everyone celebrated with the winners in each category at the Red Carpet "YOU are the Stars" Awards Ceremony.

Plans are being executed to double the attendance for the 2nd Annual Capital City Black Film Festival. You don't want to miss this year's event. We are excited to welcome you and provide information you need to help you take your place in the change Black film market.
