The San Francisco Black Film Festival (SFBFF) extends its warm congratulations to James Farr, esteemed alum and award-winning journalist, on his upcoming moderating role in the live-streamed interview with presidential candidate Dr. Cornel West and vice- presidential candidate Dr. Melina Abdullah. Scheduled for June 21, 2024, this significant event will now take place online via YouTube, expanding its reach to a nationwide audience.

James Farr, a recipient of the prestigious 2022 Jeff Adachi Social Justice Award, has continually demonstrated a commitment to social justice through his impactful documentary work, including "Zinzun: A Revolutionary Activist," with Director Dennis Haywood, a subject of a panel discussion in the 2022 Durban International Film Festival, a partner of the San Francisco Black Film Festival. Farr's dedication to amplifying diverse voices and advocating for justice aligns closely with the mission of the San Francisco Black Film Festival.
