Tommy, I had an amazing time at CBFF. I have been to a lot of festivals and yours is by far is one of the best I’ve been to. It services the people that need it the most. Plus, in terms of attendance it’s probably the best and I have been to Pan African and HBFF and the people do not support independent films like they do at CBFF if they don’t have stars in it. What you’re doing for the city of Charlotte is outstanding.

2016 Theme is “Unified to Create”
When we come together not as a white race or black race but as the human race we can then begin to utilize perfect harmonies, to proudly express our cultures, appreciate our differences and to create a world that only a newborn sees. —–
