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! The NBFF acts as a bridge to connect industries professionals and those upcoming together under one roof for 4 days of entertainment, education and empowerment.


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.
