BEING BLACK IN CANADA
The 8th edition of the HBFF is proud to present the participants of the 2023 edition of the Fabienne Colas Foundation's Being Black in Canada program - presented by Netflix, in collaboration with the National Bank, and supported by Telefilm Canada, the Canada Media Fund and the Canada Council for the Arts.
On Saturday, February 24th an entire evening will be dedicated to the young filmmakers who will present their very first short documentary films to the Halifax public. The program represents Canada’s largest mentorship, training, and creation program entirely dedicated to Black filmmakers. This important initiative, created by the Fabienne Colas Foundation’s Youth and Diversity Program, aims to train, mentor and empower the next generation of Black Filmmakers in Cinema and Television.
