BLACK HISTORY MONTH AT THE GRAND CINEMA
Join us in celebrating Black filmmakers, storytellers, and performers this February for Black History Month! Our Tuesday Film Series, Weird Elephant Series, and Classic Film Series each present films directed by Black filmmakers and films starring Black casts throughout the month. Stay tuned as we continue to announce our programming, including short films by local Black filmmakers paired with feature films.
"I decided that I wanted to tell a story that was authentic to African American culture—authentic to the point where it was not like something you could turn on the television and see. I wanted it to be more like a foreign film and so deeply into the culture that it appeared to be foreign."
— Julie Dash, the first African American woman director to achieve nationwide theatrical distribution with her film Daughters of the Dust
