The founder of the Las Vegas Black Film Festival is Ms. Michelle, known nationally as “the First Lady of Gospel Theatre”. She noticed something missing from the Las Vegas culture and decided to create an avenue to highlight the talents of Black Filmmakers. Her goal is to bring excitement and energy to up and coming African Americans.
