From Academy Award®-winning director Steve McQueen and co-writer and bestselling author Gillian Flynn comes a blistering, modern-day thriller set against the backdrop of crime, passion and corruption. 20th Century Fox’s Widows is the story of four women (played by Viola Davis, Michelle Rodriguez, Elizabeth Debicki and Cynthia Erivo) with nothing in common except a debt left behind by their dead husbands’ criminal activities. It will screen at the festival on Friday, September 21, 2018. Set in contemporary Chicago amid a time of turmoil, tensions build when the women take their fate into their own hands and conspire to forge a future on their own terms.
Amandla Stenberg leads 20th Century Fox’s The Hate U Give as Starr Carter, a girl constantly switching between two worlds: the poor, mostly black neighborhood where she lives and the rich, mostly white, prep school she attends. The uneasy balance between these worlds is shattered when Starr witnesses the fatal shooting of her childhood best friend Khalil (played by Algee Smith), at the hands of a police officer. Now, facing pressures from all sides of the community, Starr must find her voice and stand up for what’s right. George Tillman Jr. directs the film based on the critically-acclaimed New York Times bestselling book by Angie Thomas. After the film closes the 2018 Urbanworld Film Festival on Saturday, September 22, 2018, there will be a conversation with Tillman, Stenberg and Smith moderated by ARRAY founder and Academy Award® nominee Ava DuVernay.

Superfly kicks off American Black Film Festival on June 13 on South Beach log on to www.abff.com for all the details.
The remake, helmed by Director X and starring Trevor Jackson, is set to rock the slick world of Atlanta where Youngblood Priest rumbles the streets and swaps his cash for crypto. A hustler since age 11, his transactions are large – over $33 million – so he’s no two-bit day trader. Rims, shades, pole dancing, music thumping, bling and cars. The millennial treatment of the blaxploitation classic that immortalized bikini-fro-hoop chicks and gangster leans looks drizzled in God’s Plan and Hotline Bling Director X’s chutzpah. He knows how to marry the camera with the man to deliver a 2018 SuperFly dude who leaps right off the screen and into the streets. All hustle. No shame. #SuperFly
“We are thrilled ‘Superfly’ will be the opening night film at the 2018 ABFF,” CEO Jeff Friday said. “For many, the title resonates as a cultural touchstone, not only for the look and style of the film itself, but also for Curtis Mayfield’s legendary soundtrack, and for its place in history. ‘Superfly’ is one of the few films of its era that featured African-American characters with agency and power. In bringing ‘Superfly’ to a new generation, Director X has transitioned a timeless classic into a modern day, entertaining film that will be enjoyed by all.”
