Destiny - A Red Creative Film production selected as a finalist in the Afrofuturism Film Festival
"Afrofuturism is a literary and cultural aesthetic that combines elements of science fiction, historical fiction, fantasy, Afrocentricity, and magic realism with non-Western cosmologies in order to critique not only the present-day dilemmas of people of color, but also to revise, interrogate, and re-examine the historical events of the past."
BlackWorldCinema™ Cinema - Chicago and Afrofuturism.net are looking for films that reflect the Afrofuturist aesthetic from short to feature, animation and documentary.
In it's third year, the festival takes place each year in the month of February on Chicago's Southside at the Studio Movie Grill Chatham Theater.
Through our festival we want to nurture and present filmmakers working in the area of sci-fi, fantasy, horror, steamfunk, surrealist, documentary and just plain funky frames.
