How do you manage to watch 122 films in 5 days? You don't! Like most people attending the 2007 Hollywood Black Film Festival (HBFF) you pick and choose. So I managed to see a couple of films and attend a few the parties. Of course, the best networking in Hollywood is often done amid loud music with a pretty glass of liquid courage in one hand, and your business card in the other.
Filmmakers and supporters, myself included, tore the roof of a couple of spots in Beverly Hills and Los Angeles. And since I didn't officially celebrate my birthday, I got my groove on!....On the dance floor that is. I dropped it like it was hot, luke warm, and finally cold when the body screamed, No Mas! Here's some pics of my HBFF experience:
