Presented by Orlando Health at CMX Cinemas Plaza Café 12 (Formerly Cobb Theatres), Orlando FL

Jan 26 - 29 2022
2022 Orlando Urban Film Festival 9th Anniversary Celebration

Film and music festival focused on underprivileged and diverse content creators.

In 2022, OUFF has the unique privilege of collaborating with the historic, ZORA! Festival. The theme is “Afrofuturism through the Film Lens and Music”. This association will allow our submitters and attendees to see themselves on the screen and celebrate their rich heritage and culture during the ZORA! Festival.

Zora Neale Hurston was considered an Afrofuturist; one who dared to see the greatness in people of color and created worlds where they were recognized and respected. During our four-day celebration, we will pay homage to Zora and those who have followed her direction and have become successful Afrofuturists in their own rights.
African American film directors, producers, writers, actors, and actresses broke through the Hollywood roadblocks to participate in creating films in the sci-fi world.
