The Harlem International Film Festival started with a handful of independent Harlem-based filmmakers in 2005 and has since developed into a showcase for feature films, documentaries, shorts, animated features, youth projects, music videos and episodic works from across the globe.

But the festival still pays homage to its own neighborhood with the Harlem Spotlight series, which features films that were produced or directed by local residents, were shot in the neighborhood or serve to highlight Harlem’s culture and history.
