Detroit, MI

Autumn Sun is a grassroots organization with the sole purpose of spotlighting the works of young Black creatives. With a focus on artists thirty and under, our goal is to continually create opportunities that usher in the next generation of Black voices. Entering the second year of our HBCU student exclusive short film festival, the top student films will be hosted in Detroit (MI) for a chance to take home the $10,000 Jury Selection at the 2023 HBCU Film Invitational.


The 2023 HBCU Film Invitational is a four-day celebration broadcast live with our partner HBCU Go TV, an Allen Media Group company. 


Attendees and viewers will experience a weekend filled with networking mixers, screenings, community events & entertainment, capped off with the Autumn Sun Invitational Awards Presentation & Gala.


In partnership with the City of Detroit Office of Arts, Culture and Entrepreneurship, and network partner HBCU Go TV, festival events will be accessible to both domestic and international audiences.
