Cadillac, a long-time supporter of the ABFF, is honored to celebrate the achievements of Black artists across film, television, music, and beyond. “We’re thrilled to present the first-ever cinematic music experience at the festival,” says Juanita Slappy, Head of Multicultural Marketing at Cadillac. “The Cadillac Lounge at ABFF will cultivate conversations with leading thought leaders and innovators, feature two incredible live performances celebrating Black Music Month, host live podcast recordings, and showcase our electric vehicle lineup including LYRIQ test drives. These experiences will spotlight the power of music in film, enhanced by Cadillac’s authentic connection to culture and the innovative spirit of our electric vehicles.”

Demetria L. Lucas, known for her thought-provoking interviews and engaging format, will be connecting with some of the biggest names in the industry at ABFF through her live podcasts. These conversations promise to delve deep into the hottest topics in film, culture, and beyond, offering a unique opportunity for festival attendees to gain valuable insights and connect with the creative forces shaping the entertainment landscape.
