The complete 2010 Black Harvest Film Festival schedule announced

It took a while, but finally the complete and final 2010 Black Harvest Film Festival in Chicago has been announced. Over 40 movies in every category from feature film to shorts, documentaries, dramas (such as Bilal’s Stand pictured), comedies and everything else in between. All the films will be screened at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago located at 164 N. State St in the heart of downtown Chicago.

Opening night is Friday August 6th and the festival continues throughout the month until Thursday Sept. 2 with a special advance screening of Tanya Hamilton’s Night Captures Us with Ms. Hamilton present. Of course I will be there too on most nights, so if you ever had the desire to punch me out for any of my articles on S & A now here’s your chance. (Not that I encourage it though…)

The complete list below:

Common to recieve Deloris Jordan Award at Black Harvest

It’s been announced that Common will be this year’s recipient of this year Deloris Jordan Award for Excellence in Community Leadership on opening night of the Black Harvest Film Festival at the Gene Siskel Film Center in Chicago on Friday August 6th. (You see, we didn’t hold Just Wright against him.)

Also there’s a rumor, though at this point unsubstantiated, that Mrs. Jordan’s son, someone I think by the name of Michael or something like that, might make a special appearance in a show of support for Common and his efforts, as well as being a long time friend.
