The 28th annual American Black Film Festival (ABFF) announced the Retrospective: Celebrating the Legacy of Denzel Washington program, which will take place on Saturday, June 15. This will include a Q&A with Washington about his life and career, moderated by Publisher Chaz Ebert

ABFF states that this distinguished program is the first of its kind, celebrating the careers of extraordinary Black artists. This year’s festival, which takes place live in Miami Beach June 12-16, followed by an online segment June 17-24 on ABFF PLAY, spotlights incredible emerging creatives in the filmmaking space. 

“We are thrilled and honored to present Denzel Washington with the very first ABFF career retrospective,” said Jeff Friday, Founder & CEO of NICE CROWD. “Denzel has been a longtime supporter of ABFF having attended the festival in the early years, so it is truly a full circle moment for us to spotlight his career in this way.”

The program will be moderated by Chaz Ebert, CEO of Ebert Digital, philanthropist and producer of film and television shows that deal with social justice themes.
