Welcome to the National Black Film Festival

In 2017 The National Black Film Festival (NBFF) brought Hollywood to H-Town. In 2018 we are doing it for the culture. NBFF is giving your stories the platform they deserve! The NBFF acts as a bridge to connect industries professionals with the latest up and coming filmmakers all together with 4 days of education, empowerment and entertainment.


The NBFF was founded by 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 more high quality films in the Houston, Texas metropolitan area-mapping the city as a major cinematic outlet.

Come mix and mingle with the industries elite, learn trade secrets and build those essential relationships that will take your filmmaking to the next level.
