If you made it up to the Cape this weekend, you might have heard about the Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival. This noteworthy event has been taking place on the island of Martha’s Vineyard for twelve years and is a great platform for emerging and independent African American filmmakers.
This year, Lincoln Motor Company was the presenting sponsor of the 12th Annual Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival, which was created by Run&Shoot Filmworks and took place this past weekend. This is the first time that Lincoln has collaborated on the festival.
During the five-day film festival film director and Lincoln “Journey Series” partner Nelson George debuted his work in progress film, “A Ballerina’s Tale”, a documentary profiling the well known dancer Misty Copeland.
For Lincoln, teaming up with Run&Shoot Filmworks on the annual Martha’s Vineyard African American Film Festival provided another opportunity for the brand to show its commitment to the arts as well as the community.
Lincoln Motor Company also offered attendees the chance to test drive the Lincoln MKC, Lincoln’s first small premium utility vehicle. Plus, Lincoln presented the Lincoln Motor Company Audience Award to one lucky filmmaker.
