Farewell

Miami's film festival calendar just got a little less crowded.

After five years of unspooling movies during the sweltering South Florida summer, the American Black Film Festival is packing it up and heading west - to Los Angeles.

Festival founder Jeff Friday told USA Today that the move to L.A. "is an important part in the festival's evolution. We intend to work more closely with the studios and create a more potent marketplace for buyers and producers of independent black cinema."

The move west has also impacted the festival's dates. Instead of a summer fling, this year's edition will take place Oct. 25-29.
