On February 26, Natalie Morrow, Founder of the Twin Cities Black Film Festival, was honored by the Minnesota Timberwolves. At every home game during Black History Month, the Minnesota Timberwolves have honored community leaders who share the Timberwolves’ pride and in turn, enrich their community.
“I am so very honored. This was a great, prestigious honor for Black History Month,” Morrow said. Morrow, who was honored at Target Center’s center court and given an autographed basketball, has led the Film Festival since its inception some ten years ago.
Since its inception, the Twin Cities Black Film Festival has showcased over 300 filmmakers as well as 450 films, shorts and documentaries, offering emerging filmmakers and opportunity to showcase their work, and for industry professionals to discover emerging talent.
