2013 Langston Hughes African American Film Festival

April 13 – April 21, 2013

The LHAAFF celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2013 at the newly renovated Langston Hughes Performing Arts Institute. LHAAFF takes a look back with a 30th anniversary screening of the sci-fi classic Brother from Another Planet, and a look forward with a presentation of actor/director Robert Townsend’s newest independent film In the Hive. Both films spotlight powerful personal transformation stories. Transformations also appear thematically in many in many of the more than 40 films and shorts that ran during the nine-day festival.
