HipHop has captured the fascination of young people from New York City’s South Bronx parks in the 70’s to the bullet trains of Tokyo today. These youth can be seen and heard expressing themselves through the language, fashion and music that are HipHop culture. The Atlanta HipHop Film Festival is dedicated to creating an event that encompasses all these elements mentioned bonded by the common thread of social responsibility to ensure positive, beneficial messages are conveyed to HipHop’s invaluable on-screen audience.
