A host of Hollywood stars will be in attendance; including Kevin Frazier (co-host of “Entertainment Tonight”), Hill Harper (actor and author), David Oyelowo (breakout “Selma” star) and Robi Reed (Emmy-winning casting director).

The festival will also feature classes, breakout sessions, and panels between moving screenings. Sessions in financing, TV/film scriptwriting, and directing have been added to this year’s line-up.  A panel session held after the screening of “3 ½ Minutes, Ten Bullets” to discuss racial tensions and the media will be led by Sybrina Fulton (the mother of Trayvon Martin), Benjamin Crump (representative of Martin’s family and Michael Brown’s family), and others.
