The 18th Annual Run&Shoot Filmworks Martha’s Vineyard African-American Film Festival an OSCAR® Qualifying Festival in the Short Film Category has been
For the past 18 years, Stephanie and I have been able to build an amazing community of attendees, sponsors and filmmakers who come together every year to celebrate the works of filmmakers of color.
We recognize that The Martha’s Vineyard African-American Film Festival has become a tradition for many, but unfortunately, our normal traditions and interactions have come to a standstill due to the COVID-19 virus.
After extensive consultation with all of our partners we have decided to postpone the 2020 MVAAFF and pivot the festival to October 6-10 in Denver, CO.
We know that this crisis brings about unique challenges and we’re sensitive to the ripple effect any decision we make will have on the island and our island partners.
Please know that at the forefront is the health and well-being of you, our staff, and the residents of Martha’s Vineyard.
The 2021 dates are August 6-14th, 2021
Thank you for your continued support, stay healthy and we will see you again soon.
