Hamilton Black Film Festival with Melissa Murray-Mutch

Apr 21, 05:05 PM

Welcome to the Hamilton Film Podcast, where host Alysha Main documents what’s happening in the film industry in Hamilton Ontario.

The very first Hamilton Black Film Festival takes place May 28-30th, 2021.  The festival showcases cultural and traditional films of African/Caribbean, Native, Asian, and Middle Eastern filmmakers and other films of ethnic inclusion.  I chat with actor, educator and festival volunteer Melissa Murray-Mutch about on screen representation, what makes a film a BIPOC film, and how the festival came together.  
You can find more info about the Hamilton Black Film Festival at hbff.ca Purchase your pass for the 3 day festival before May 1 to save $20.

I’ll be back in 2 weeks with another episode of Hamilton Film Podcast.
