2017 Define American Film Festival

The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture
551 S Tryon St Charlotte, NC 28202
The Harvey B. Gantt Center for African-American Arts + Culture is proud to present the second annual Define American Film Festival. Audience-goers, journalists and strategic partners will get an entertaining and informative look at the immigrant experience across a range of cultures. Each screening will be followed by panel discussions featuring filmmakers, actors, and local advocates including the legendary Dolores Huerta. During these panels, attendees will hear candid and impassioned perspectives that help us go beyond the reductive, simplistic talking points that we’ve become accustomed to, humanizing the issue of immigration. In addition, each discussion will explore the intersectionality of immigration and issues of race, identity, and LGBTQ rights in our country. Films include: "Dolores"; "Meet the Patels"; "White People"; "Am I: Too African to be American or Too American to be African?"; and "Forbidden: Undocumented and Queer in Rural America"; and more.
