The 2018 American Black Film Festival kicked off from June 13th and ended June 17th. On June 15th, the Netflix Original Film team gathered on stage at the Betsy Hotel in Miami to talk about inclusion and diversity.

The conversation covered what they were looking for as far as original content. During the panel, several of the executives mentioned that they were looking for up and coming African-American writers and filmmakers as well as freelance crew members.

They stated that Netflix would also like to diversify the content and on-the-ground production teams.

The panelist attending ABFF included Noelle Green, Physical Production, Original Films; Tahirah Gooden, Development & Production, Original Films; Funa Maduka, Content Acquisitions, Global Independent Feature Films & Documentaries.
