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.
- 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.
