Students of Moving the Lives of Kids Community Mural join forces with the American Black Film Festival to feature their talented artistic creations

Miami, FL- Eight students from the Moving the Lives of Kids (MLK) Community Mural (sponsored by The Miami Foundation) have been invited to attend the American Black Film Festival (ABFF) for the Youth Filmmaker Program. The MLK Community Mural’s itinerary for Saturday June 22, 2013 includes: a tour of the festival, attendance of The Artist’s Vision panel discussion, lunch sponsored by Jackson Soul Food and attendance of the ABFF Awards Presentation. The children will also be given the opportunity to participate in meet and greets with key ABFF influencers including festival producer Reggie Scott, the 2013 ABFF Ambassador and actor, Omari Hardwick and other celebrities attending the festival. The images that these students capture in their minds during this full-day experience will provide them with the inspiration to create a dynamic canvas mural on Sunday during the Films Over Miami Community Showcase on Sunday June 23rd, an initiative under Film Life, Inc. and the SEOPW-CRA. The Films Over Miami will feature the films of some of Miami’s emerging filmmakers. The children of MLK Community Mural will be demonstrating a live art presentation featured throughout the film showcase, with the final art work to debut at the red carpet premier of the Miami filmed, Playin’ For Love, directed by Robert Townsend. The premier will commence at the Colony Theater at 5:00 pm.
