American Black Film Festival @ Miami Beach, Florida (Miami Beach) – The American Black Film Festival (ABFF) is an annual event dedicated to empowering black artists and showcasing quality film and television content by and about people of African descent.
Committed to the belief that diverse artists deserve the same opportunities as their mainstream counterparts, ABFF founder Jeff Friday conceived the festival in 1997 as a vehicle to strengthen the black filmmaking community by encouraging resource sharing, education and artistic collaboration. He ultimately envisioned it as a cornerstone of diversity in Hollywood.

Laid-back ambiance, rustic decor, pool tables & jukebox make this SoBe institution a local hangout. What Mac’s Club Deuce has done in South Beach is nothing short of a miracle.
