The ABFF AWARDS: A CELEBRATION OF HOLLYWOOD celebrates Black culture and recognizes individuals, movies and television shows of the past year that have had a significant impact on American entertainment, as well as the people who have been proponents in championing diversity and inclusion in Hollywood. In addition to recognizing the top television shows and films of the year, the event also pays tribute to film legends along with today's creative forces, who together inspire the filmmakers and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
