  • About the event

    In Partnership with Fusion Melange, the Virginia Diasporic Communities Film Festival brings Haitian Film Night to the 757 area.

    May is Haitian Heritage Month, a celebration and expansion of Haitian Flag Day held on May 18th, a major patriotic day celebrated in Haiti and by the Haitian Diaspora.

    To celebrate the historical and cultural significance of Haitians here in the U.S., as well as their achievements and contributions to the world, #VADCFF and Fusion Melange will be screening a Haitian film paired with a taste of Haitian cuisine!

    Why should you sponsor?

       The Virginia Diasporic Communities Film Festival (VADCFF) is an annual celebration of filmmaking, visual storytelling and artistry from communities of color that represent Virginia’s diaspora. Our mission is to teach about different cultures through film, art, food and culture. Our traditions celebrate the diverse cultures and identities that make up the state’s growing population. VADCFF is dedicated to presenting vibrant and unique stories from diasporic communities that live outside of their homelands but have made new roots in the Commonwealth. We believe that film is not only meant to entertain, but to create dialogue and opportunities in the film industry, challenge differing viewpoints and ideologies, affirm the importance of inclusion and representation, and generate insight, understanding, and appreciation of cultural experiences and expressions. 

    The support of your organization, along with others, help us to host different cultural events geared toward educating youth and adults interested in creation of film, production and screen writng.
