‘Girls Trip’ to open 2017 American Black Film Festival

On Wednesday, June 14, the American Black Film Festival will open with the new comedy Girls Trip.

Girls Trip follows the story of four lifetime friends who are traveling down to the annual Essence Festival and follows them on their adventures of sisterhood and hijinks.

“The MPAA is thrilled to once again sponsor the Opening Night film for the American Black Film Festival,” said Senator Chris Dodd, Chairman and CEO of the Motion Picture Association of America. “For five years, the MPAA has partnered with the ABFF to diversify the creative pipeline, and I want to commend my good friend Jeff Friday and his team on their extraordinary work in presenting a wide array of diverse stories to the Festival audience. I would like to thank our member studio Universal Pictures for partnering with us to showcase their new film Girls Trip.”

“We deeply appreciate Senator Dodd and the MPAA team’s continued support of ABFF. Both the MPAA and Universal Pictures are genuinely committed to supporting diversity in the motion-picture industry, and we are excited to premiere Girls Trip to the ABFF audience on opening night,” said ABFF Ventures CEO Founder Jeff Friday.

Girls Trip hits theaters on July 21. In the meantime, to buy tickets to the American Black Film Festival, you can go here.
