Q&A session to follow each film: Friday 6pm. Free.
This five-day international film festival focuses on images of Hip-Hop culture through the eyes of the filmmaker. Whether using feature, short, commercial, video, or screenplay formats, these filmmakers are re-defining the images that depict Hip-Hop culture and the communities that embrace it. The Bronx Museum is located at 1040 Grand Concourse on the corner of 165th St. in the Bronx – near Yankee Stadium and the Bronx County Courthouse.
