In what’s being called one of the most riveting collection of films in its four-year history, directors of the Denton Black Film Festival will present a line-up of nearly 50 films at the 2018 edition. Linda Eaddy, the festival’s director of film, has curated a collection that champions student, filmmakers, along with highlighting local, national, and international independent filmmakers.
This year’s featured musician is Frank Mccomb, an internationally acclaimed R&B, jazz and gospel recording artist, who will be performing 9 pm, January 27 at the Patterson-Appleton Arts Center. Nationally known, Chicago-born poet, Verb Kulture will host this year's "Poetry Get Down and Slam" event for the third year. The slam attracts talented artists throughout the region and has sold out, leaving standing room only, every year. First place winners in the slam win $500 and second place winners $250.
