Watch These Sundance-Supported Films at the 2022 BlackStar Film Festival in Philadelphia

It’s been a couple of months since Cannes and we were starting to wonder when we’d be getting our next Festival fix! Thankfully, starting tomorrow, the BlackStar Film Festival begins and some familiar faces are in the lineup.

Taking over Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, from August 3 to 7, BlackStar Film Festival is “an annual celebration of the visual and storytelling traditions of the African diaspora and of global Indigenous communities, showcasing films by Black, Brown and Indigenous artists from around the world.”

From 2022 Sundance Film Festival alums to Sundance-supported projects making their debut, there’s a lot to celebrate this week.

As we know, film festival programs can be daunting with all of their offerings, so below we’ve provided you with a quick cheat sheet of all the BlackStar films that were born from the Sundance family.
