It’s going to be historical! The Newark Museum of Arts, 49 Washington Street, just announced the line-up for their upcoming Newark Black Film Festival. Celebrating its 50th anniversary, the NBFF continues to shed awareness in topics related to the African diaspora and the impact of racial and social challenges. This year’s selection of narrative features and shorts includes a couple of highly anticipated films, such as “Sing Sing” starring Colman Domingo and directed by Greg Kwedar, and Sundance hit “Rob Peace” directed by Chiwetel Ejiofor, narrating the story of an inner-city Newark kid who attends Yale yet ultimately succumbs to harsh economic realities and the demons of his past. The massively awarded Brazilian drama “Toll” (Pedagio) directed by Carolina Markowicz will screen on Friday July 12 followed by a special talk with guests. The festival runs July 10-14 and features live music, gala night and other programs. Tickets $10. INFO:
