Roxbury International Film Festival Showcases Filmmakers Of Color

June 23, 2017

This is the 19th year Boston’s Roxbury International Film Festival will screen shorts, documentaries and feature-length films illustrating the stories of people of color. The 10-day film festival screens most of its movies at the Museum of Fine Arts and the Haley House Bakery Cafe. Topics for the films are quite varied, including bone-marrow donations for mixed-race people, the untold stories of the funk band Parliament and the rights of immigrants.

For more information on the Roxbury International Film Festival, visit its website, and follow RIFF on Twitter and Facebook.


  • Lisa Simmons, director of the Roxbury International Film Festival. 
  • Anike Tourse, director of “America; I, Too,” which is screening at the Roxbury International Film Festival.
