Why: The San Francisco Black Film Festival, founded by the late San Francisco Arts impresario, Ave Montague, is a growing brand that increasingly gives a platform for emerging multicultural filmmakers and established Hollywood filmmakers to display work reflecting the African Diaspora and to interact with each other as the festival stimulates tourism. SFBFF goes beyond entertainment. The evolving brand as it increases tourism has become an economic platform for workforce development with its partnership with the National Coalition of 100 Black Women San Francisco Chapter Doris Ward Workforce Development Program.
