HIFF 2019 Presents: Visiting Filmmaker Masterclass Featuring Khalik Allah

This event has passed.

The Halifax Independent Filmmakers Festival Masterclasses feature world-class filmmaking talent in a series of daytime artist talks.

All masterclasses are in the BMO Community Room on the 2nd Floor of the Halifax Central Library. Free for passholders or $10 admission. Passholders must show both their ticket and pass to gain admission to the Masterclass.

 Join us for a unique opportunity to learn filmmaking approach and technique from New York’s Khalik Allah. HIFF is screening his latest documentary feature Black Mother on Thursday June 13 at 7pm at Neptune Scotiabank Stage Theatre.


About the Filmmaker:

Khalik Allah is a New York-based photographer and filmmaker who describes his work as Camera Ministry. Allah exploded on the film scene in 2015 with the documentary Field Niggas, shot at nighttime on the corner of 125th St. and Lexington Avenue in NYC. Allah’s second feature film Black Mother is an expansion of his unique filmic style and began its journey with premieres at the True/False Film Fest, New Directors New Films, and CPH:DOX, followed by screenings at London’s ICA and Paris’ Centre Pompidou. His first photography book Souls Against the Concrete, with images also shot on this street corner, was published by University of Texas Press in 2017. Photos from this were on view in a solo exhibition at New York’s Gitterman Gallery in Spring 2018.
