Welcome to the 3rd Annual Hollywood South Urban Film Festival 2020!!!  It will be held in Atlanta, GA.  The HSUFF is a Film Festival that brings people together to acknowledge and appreciate the history of the African American culture.  This year we will screen short films, feature films, documentaries, web series and music videos that will be submitted from all over the world. There will be something for everyone for all ages to enjoy.  The HSUFF will provide up and coming filmmakers, actors, singers, and music producers a platform to tell their stories by providing them opportunities to show their art on the BIG SCREEN. Although we focus on providing exposure of African American content, this film festival will be a platform that will give all genres an opportunity for their work to be seen. Many times art that is related to African American culture gets overlooked because of the lack of star power or strong finances to back it.  So our festival committee will personally screen every project submitted, selecting the very best projects to be shown at the film festival.   This experience will be a great opportunity to meet and network with people that are a part of the film industry.  We encourage all to take full advantage of all that Atlanta, GA and the film industry provides for inspiring filmmakers!!!



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.
