About the event

The Black August Film Festival will be held on August 19-20, 2023, at the Flintridge Center in Pasadena. The festival will welcome films about social issues around  the world.  Black August is an annual commemoration and prison-based  holiday to remember Black freedom fights and political prisoners and to  highlight Black resistance against racial oppression. It takes place  during the entire calendar month of August.  Black August was initiated  by the Black Guerilla Family in San Quentin State Prison in 1979 when a  group of incarcerated people came together to commemorate the deaths of  brothers Jonathan P. Jackson (d. August 7, 1970) and George L. Jackson  (d. August 21, 1971) at San Quentin State Prison.  The Black August Film  Festival Is unique because it only welcomes films that deal with social  stigmas, and issues, from oppression, and minimum wage to the prison  population and police abuse, to a variety of other topics. The festival  will be filled with thought-provoking content and panels.
