Atlanta Host’s First Black Women Film Summit

On Thursday, The Black Women Film Network (BWFN) kicked off the Black Women Film Summit at Spelman College in Atlanta. The three-day cultural celebration of black women in the arts and entertainment, featured appearances from several influencers within the industry, including filmmaker and producer Will Packer and casting director and producer, Robi Reed.

The summit was the perfect event for Women’s History Month as hundreds of women showed up to network, and attend a variety of film screenings, including a special viewing of Centric TV’s “Single Ladies.”

Highlights included the inspiring “Untold Stories” luncheon, which honored key industry players, and the closing performance from singer/actress V. Bozeman, who opened the premiere season of “Empire” with her breathtaking performance of “What is Love.” For the closing ceremony, she treated guests to a powerful performance of her song “Race Jones.” A true talent, indeed.

BWFN is dedicated to preserving the voice of black women in the arts, and that mission was clear with the line of events during the summit. Photos from the summit can be viewed below.
