The MIBFF is pleased to co-present the Blaxploitation series, presented by the Fantasia festival this July 2014!
Beginning this summer, it will be associated with Fantasia to pay homage to African-American cinema from the 1970s known as BLAXPLOITATION. The MIBFF is happy to be a part of Fantasia’s initiative, which gives Montrealers the chance to discover an important part of black cinema. This homage, previously unseen in Montreal, will take place as a part of the Fantasia Festival from July 22 to August 5, 2014, as a part of Celluloid Soul.
