The Idlewild International Film Fest is a Women's film festival, comprised of; film, art, media education, music, and culture. The films screened will include independent international short films in the form of; narratives, documentaries, music videos, and web series. The short film blocks will each have a theme that is designed to educate, entertain and enlighten the audience. During our full-day (Saturday 08/24/2019), film-related workshops and panel discussions will take place in addition to the Black History 101 Museum by Khalid El-Hakim.


To organize this event, we have been working closely with Idlewild’s residents, organizers, artists, historians, and businesses. They have been an integral part of securing sites, informing us of the community’s rich history and, connecting us to locals interested in attending our workshops, screenings, and volunteering.  Visitors will learn about the rich history of Idlewild while watching movies, camping, listening to live entertainment and more!
