Award winning actress Paula Jai Parker will host The NBFF Awards Show which will take place on Saturday, April 8, 2017 at 7:00 pm.

The NBFF was founded by Houston area film producer J.O. Malone with an initiative to build an enlightening platform for future filmmakers and actors.  Another primary goal of the NBFF is to stimulate the production of professional films in the Houston, Texas metropolitan area--mapping the city as a major cinematic outlet.

As recent trends across entertainment media reflect, movies such as "Get Out", "Hidden Figures" and "Fences", have altered conversations amass about the growing recognition and inexplicable talent of African American actors and filmmakers. The NBFF will offer a powerful platform for film professionals and aspiring millennials to connect under one roof for 4 full days.  The celebrity hosted workshops and panels are designed to educate, inspire and to give an inside perspective to hopefuls who are seeking to build a successful career in the film industry.
