Soul West Film Fest 2017 (SWFF) is Sundance meets SXSW meets AfroPunk; a gathering for the new age of information and storytelling that brings together visionaries across the industries and diverse audiences. SWFF happens all in one night, one venue, one mic and one screen.

SWFF gives birth to urban film and the New Media Renaissance in the Valley of the Sun– from film to TV, VR to online work, and music to live performance. As a platform for creative expression, independent filmmaking, and mesmerizing entertainment, SWFF champions emerging and established voices, showcasing award-winning urban films and filmmakers, soul music, culture and new technology through premieres, exhibitions, talks and live performances.
