A showcase of Calgary’s Black film industry took place in Calgary recently.
Before the event started, players in the industry walked the red carpet outside the Globe Cinema on Eighth Avenue.
Organizers of the event said the goal of the event is to promote Black voices in the creative industries.
Fabienne Colas, the festival president said: “It was important to give them a platform to be seen. Because Black people, Black artists, they don’t lack talent. They just lack opportunities.
“And this festival really comes to complement every other festival that already exists in the city because we want more inclusion and more diversity in the film and TV industry.”
Also, the organizers said Calgary possesses Canada’s fourth-largest Black population, after Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa, as such. it’s important to offer this platform.
