Hip Hop Film Festival 2022 Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, new york city

The Harlem Film House’s Hip Hop Film Festival is the only festival that focuses on filmmakers and movie lovers raised in THE CULTURE.

All genres, all stories welcome… We focus on STORIES FROM THE CULTURE… narratives that are reshaping culture across a broad spectrum and influencing how we watch visually impactful narratives.

Over the past 6 years the festival has been sponsored by REVOLT, BET NETWORKS, NETFLIX, FINAL DRAFT, 1010WINS, DOSDUDES PICTURES, OUNCE Water, New York Life, Verizon, and a host of other amazing collaborators. We host over 200 filmmakers from every continent, and 3,000 film enthusiasts from all over the world at our dedicated theater in NYC for what we call “FOUR DAYS OF FRESH”.

The Hip Hop Film Festival also features the “Master Cypher®” where Hollywood Insiders gave their expertise on how to negotiate distribution deals, the business side of getting a screenplay greenlit, a successful web series, how to fund a major movie on a budget and more…

The festival awards the distinction of BEST of the FEST in over 21 categories including, best Feature, Best Documentary, Best Web Series and more. The festival and our filmmakers received world wide press and many went on to be invited to other festivals. Some are now on world tours and some scored distribution deals

… and it began with the Hip Hop Film Festival.

The 2022 season of the Hip Hop Film Festival begins August 11th NYC. This year we honor the work and legacy of Warrington Hudlin.

Powered by 247Films.tv, the festival will launch the careers of the next batch of independent writers, directors and actors who are children of the global culture of Hip Hop.
