Our Mission

Welcome to the Hollywood South Urban Film Festival, a three day event with a focus on African-American filmmakers! Our mission is to provide a platform for films to be reconized for their quality even though they may lack star power or strong finances.    If you have any questions please reach out to us at filmfestival@hsuff.com     We’d love to hear from you. Thank you for your interest.

Be Inspired By Everything

The HSUFF committee often finds inspiration by selecting films that often are overlooked for various reasons. We hope to find films that are just as good or better than some films which get national exposure.  Our film festival will display films that are representative of the African American Culture.
