One of Atlanta’s most revered and multifaceted cultural happenings is set to celebrate its 30th anniversary this fall, and your Luxury Collection accommodations here at The Whitley in Buckhead provide convenient access to the occasion!
Originally established by the Fulton County Arts Council, the National Black Arts Festival kicked off back in 1988 and has attracted an incredible roster of luminaries over the years: from Maya Angelou to Harry Belafonte, from Gladys Knight to Youssou N’Dour, from Katherine Dunham to Spike Lee. Ten years ago, Congress formally recognized the festival for the contributions it continues to make to the “cultural fabric of greater Atlanta and all of America.”
The festival, which incorporates visual art of all kinds as well as performance art, is always inspiring, stimulating, and thought-provoking, and well worth a trip to Atlanta—and a stay at The Whitley—for.

Overview of the 82nd Annual Atlanta Film Festival, April 13-22, 2018
Although April 13th marks the official opening of the festival, the preceding evening will see some Georgia filmmakers in the spotlight with screenings at the Plaza Theatre of Walking Distance and Spring in My Hometown, collections of documentary and narrative shorts, respectively.
The opening night film on Friday, meanwhile, is Blindspotting, directed by Carlos López Estrada; its lead actors and cowriters, Daveed Diggs and Rafael Casal, will be attending the screening at the Plaza, which begins at 7 PM. The closing film of the festival, in turn, is Man Made on Sunday, April 22nd at 9 PM at the Plaza. This documentary profiles four competitors at the only transgender bodybuilding event in the world.
In between are all manner of other films—dramas, comedies, shorts, animations, etc.—as well as panel discussions, Q&As, masterclasses, afterparties, and other good stuff. Besides the Plaza Theatre, festival venues include the Hilan Theatre, Paris on Ponce, the Woodruff Arts Center, and the Callanwolde Fine Arts Center, among others.
