The first annual New Birth International Film Festival (NBIFF) is launching the first-of-its-kind, Imaginariums, merging Hollywood & Faith Based film, television and music sectors
for a weekend of entertainment, education and networking, October 18
th – 19th, at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church. Industry veterans Pastor Jamal Bryant and Actress Lisa Wu have come together to offer an action packed weekend of screenings, master classes, panels and performances.
 
The goal of NBIFF is to provide current and aspiring entertainment professionals with the network and tools needed to take their careers to
the next level. The NBIFF is bringing its audience and attendees knowledge from some of the best in their respective industries, such as
Actress,

“The New Birth Film Festival is the start of changing how we do church, we have got to get outside of the four walls and impact culture, there seems to be a disconnect…with Atlanta becoming black Hollywood the church has got to find its place in that space.” states Pastor Jamal
Bryant.
 
The weekend will commence with an opening night Hollywood indie film screening and an exclusive legends panel & Q&A with Robert Townsend, Bill Duke and Louis Gossett Jr., along with an array of other screened films, panels and performances in between; concluding with concert performance by James Fortune, Isaac Carree, Travis Malloy and many others.
