4th Annual Spaghetti Junction Urban Film Festival

Today wraps up the 4th Annual Spaghetti Junction Urban Film Festival at the Decatur Holiday Inn Conference Center. (I went to the one last year, and completely forgot about this year’s festival.) The SJUFF includes a student film competition, panel discussions and work shops, as well as international film showings and an artist’s market out in Downtown Decatur Square.

Tonight’s IMPACT Awards Ceremony looks to be a treat; the SJUFF will present the cast of “A Different World” with the IMPACT awards for their positive portrayal of the Black college experience, including bringing awareness to HBCUs. Kadeem Hardison, Darryl Bell, Michael Ralph and Cree Summers will be accepting. It’s not too late to attend either — $25 will get you in the door to the awards ceremony.

P.S.: You knew that Hillman College, the fictional setting of “A Different World” was modeled after Atlanta’s own Morehouse and Spelman Colleges, right? Just checking.
