“Let’s Stay Together” star Erica Hubbard has been chosen as the official ambassador of the upcoming Peachtree Village International Film Festival, which takes place throughout Atlanta from Aug. 18 through 21 and bills itself as the largest African American film and arts festival in the southeast.
Last year, Hubbard took part in PVIFF’s “Cast Me If You Can” panel about the ins and outs of casting. This year, she’s charged with promoting the entire weekend. “Basically, any questions that anyone has about the film festival, about the screenings, the networking mixers, the meet-and-greets, the panels, the competitions, I answer them,” she told EURWeb in an exclusive interview.
Opening night for this year’s festival will include a screening at the Woodruff Arts Center of “Things Fall Apart,” starring 50 Cent, Ray Liotta, Lynn Whitfield and Mario Van Peebles, as well as special screenings and events to celebrate the 20th anniversaries of “Jungle Fever” and “New Jack City.”
As previously reported, Kim Fields will be on hand for this year’s Cast Me If You Can panel and also to honor actress Ruby Dee during the festival’s “Jungle Fever” tribute.
In the bonus audio below, Hubbard tells EUR’s Lee Bailey exactly why people should attend.
