Hollywood Black Film Festival 2007

Hollywood Black Film Festival Highlights

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.

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:
