2nd Atlanta HipHop Film Festival Announces
Opening Night Gala
GA (April 20, 2006) The 2006 Atlanta HipHop Film Festival will
host an opening night gala on Friday, April 28, with a fashion show
featuring clothing lines from Ventige Soul Boutique and Makaveli
Branded. The Air Brush Shop will be present to provide free airbrushing
for guests. Networking and live music provided by Poseidon and Mr.
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.
The Atlanta HipHop Film Festival is celebrating their second year
by honoring the city’s industry tastemakers, welcoming the festival
attendees, acknowledging this year’s sponsors and recognizing the
accomplishments of this year’s honorees, LAURYN HILL, LL COOL
J, ICE T and F. GARY GRAY. The festival takes place April
