300Magazine is pleased to share the amazing news that the Nova Frontier Film Festival (NFFF) is back this June for its 4th edition.

The 2021 edition of the Nova Frontier Film Festival is focused on the theme “Past, Present, Future Home.” All 16 long- and short-form films presented at the Festival center around the complex and timely issues of economic and social injustice, both globally and locally, promoting diversity and exploring the idea of identity, home, belonging, and the resilience of marginalized voices. Held during Juneteenth weekend, NFFF 2021 will also draw people’s attention to the concepts of Black joy and resistance and highlight the liberation of Black and Brown bodies in the United States.
The Nova Frontier Film Festival 2021 will feature 16 carefully selected films and panel discussions, all free and accessible to the public. The Festival represents a multi-cultural platform designed to fight global injustice through art and to help independent filmmakers and artists from the African Diaspora, the Middle East, and Latin America share their perspectives, truths, and stories with the entire world freely.
