2006 Atlanta Hip Hop Festival

ahhf.jpg Over this weekend, the 2nd Annual Atlanta Hip Hop Film Festival returns bigger than ever, including a New York-esque block party, panels on social responsibility, gaming and the film industry as well as an awards ceremony honoring LL Cool J, Ice T, F. Gary Gray and Lauryn Hill (ahem, that’s Ms. Hill to you). The free film lineup proves to run the spectrum of hip-hop from the “dirty South” to the frigid North and will be shown at the Auburn Avenue Research Library from April 27-30. The awards ceremony will be at the Carter Center on April 27 and will also feature the theatrical debut of “Dead Prez: It’s Bigger than Hip Hop”. Check it out — the four day event begins on Thursday at 10:00 a.m.

P.S.: Also coming up in September will be the 7th Annual Billboard R&B Hip-Hop Conference and Awards.

    Hey, do you know what happens where (besides the award ceremony and the dead pres movie – that’s at Cater, I got that). But where are the movies playing. Where is the block party? Maybe I just missed it, but i didn’t see it on there.

    Have you looked at the list of films? It seems like this is the vanity side-project of the other dude from Kid-N-Play. Something like half of the films are his!

    Re: Twnkltz –

    The free film lineup will be shown at the Auburn Ave. Research Library (101 Auburn Ave.) from April 27-30. The block party is going to be at the Apex Museum’s parking lot (135 Auburn Ave.). I tried to e-mail, but when you supply fake info, that’s what you get. :)

    Re: Garth Johnson –

    You mean there was a third besides Kid or Play?
