Additional Event Details




The DCC's African American Film Festival begins Feb. 2, with a special series of films celebrating African American Culture and its influence on the film and entertainment industry.

"Jeremy Brooks," the final film in this series, is about an ambitious professional seeking to hit it big as a leading anchor in the television news business. But Jeremy lets his personal life and bouts with friends hold him back. Struggling within himself, his life is in a holding pattern until his focus and ambition is realigned with a new found faith in God and in himself.

One of the actors in the film, Keith Savage (see photo left:   Singer with mic) who is also known for his roles in "The Negative Split" and "Feeling Me" (2017), is cast as Sly Carrington in the "Jeremy Brooks" film. Savage will make an appearance during the screening where he will discuss the filming of the movie and his role as Sly Carrington.
