With household names such as ACL, SXSW and Urban Music Festival in its annual calendar, Austinnow includes CCBFF on the city’s list of annual premiere events. Taking place in the beautiful Palmer Events Center, this year’s festival will again host screenings of feature films, documentary/feature films, short films, documentary/short films and music videos. The film ratings will range from G through the maximum of R.

When asked about this year’s festival, executive director Winston Williams says “Every day I am amazed by the interest in the festival.  Filmmakers from around the country are contacting us, submitting their films and sharing our information.  We are proud to have JuVee Productions of Los Angeles, California on board with us again this year and thank Julius Tennon and Viola Davis for their unwavering support of CCBFF.”
