Held each January, the Denton Black Film Festival brings together some of the best artistic showcases of Black storytelling. Built around amazing cinema, the festival is unique from many others in that it also features music, spoken word/poetry, art and more. The event shares these stories – including traditions, ideas and experiences – in a multitude of ways, and as a way of bringing the African-American experience to life and allowing guests to experience Black culture in an immersive and engaging way. This year’s event will last five days, Jan. 23-27, 2019, in multiple venues throughout Denton. Among the features this year, the festival offers 64 film screenings, including the 1959 classic Imitation of Life, which is celebrating it’s 60-year anniversary; an online raffle of a custom quilt and exhibition by Master Quilter Barbara McCraw; and a closing performance by Grammy winner Kirk Whalum, known for his talents as the saxophonist on Whitney Houston’s “I Will Always Love You.
