The Hip Hop Film Festival has gained recognition for its innovative approach to celebrating hip hop culture and its intersection with film and multimedia. It has been praised for its commitment to showcasing diverse stories and perspectives, as well as for providing educational and networking opportunities for emerging and established creatives in the entertainment industry.


Connecting Creative Communities

ACT UP! Theatrical Read Event, a groundbreaking initiative that places a spotlight on the invaluable role writers play in the entertainment industry. This program offers writers a platform to rigorously flesh out and test their greenlit projects, ensuring they know precisely what is working or not working in their scripts. Additionally, the event extends its support to actors, providing them with a unique opportunity to showcase their talents and connect with industry professionals. The program underscores the writers' current efforts to hire industry professionals, both above and below the line, to bring their visions to life.
