*(Los Angeles) – The African American Film Critics Association (AAFCA), the premiere organization of black film journalists, is launching its first ever AAFCA Awards Weekend of events, featuring an entertainment industry career panel and an exclusive, invitation-only dinner leading up to its signature AAFCA Awards ceremony, which honors the best in film and television content, on Wednesday, Feb. 4 at the Taglyan Complex in Hollywood.
Additionally, Entertainment Tonight correspondent Nischelle Turner will host the AAFCA Awards, now in its sixth year. The critically-acclaimed and Best Picture and Best Song Oscar nominated film Selma has been named Best Picture by AAFCA.
The first AAFCA event on January 31 is a panel Q&A -“Money on My Mind: Film & Television Industry Careers” – featuring industry talent working in front of and behind the cameras. The panel and reception are sponsored by One United Bank. On February 2, an exclusive, invitation only pre-AAFCA Awards dinner will take place at a private residence.
“These newly created activities will allow AAFCA to interact and further engage with the two key groups that our organization serves – the consumer and the industry,” said Gil Robertson, AAFCA president and creator/producer of the AAFCA Awards. “Our goal is to provide both of these important audiences with high quality entertainment experiences.”
