The Hayti Heritage Film Festival in Durham, NC is a signature event each year to keep Southern Black film alive. New and veteran artists screen films before a diverse crowd of film enthusiasts while vendors provide great food, beverages, arts and crafts. The Center preserves and advances the heritage and culture of the historic Hayti community in Durham, NC and the African American experience through programs that benefit the broader community locally, nationally and globally.
In 2020 we celebrate its 26th anniversary, which will run from Thursday, February 13th through Saturday, February 15th. With an array of classic Black cinema, cutting-edge documentary and fictional shorts and features, master classes, and more, we anticipate the 2019 season to be a watershed moment for Black filmmaking in the South.
