As negative as “Blacksploitation” may sound, the genre, in conjunction with third world cinema, revolutionized the film industry through a low-budget style and the telling of street-stories-turned-classics such as Shaft and Car Wash. The era spawned a wave of Black filmmakers getting the chance to unfold a perspective otherwise ignored by Hollywood system. Tonight at 5:30, the hard work of that era’s filmmakers lives on in the form of the Twin Cities Black Film Festival. The two-day event will feature 10 films, both short- and long-form, from local independent Black filmmakers and will be held at the wonderful Trylon microcinema. Even more, if your eyes are tired from Friday’s schedule of TCBFF films, you could stick around for a showing of Tim Burton’s Batman at 9:15 p.m. 3258 Minnehaha Ave. S., Mpls., 612-424-5468.
