The American Black Film Festival was teeming with star power and melanin as some of your faves attended an all-ritzy ALLBLK pool party.
ALLBLK, the popular streaming service for Black television and film from AMC Networks, hosted two activations at the 2023 (ABFF) in Miami from June 14-18, including their annual “Shoot Your Shot” casting event and an ALLBLK Pool Party.
ALLBLK first partnered with ABFF for “Shoot Your Shot,” to kick off a nationwide casting call to find the co-star of its new relationship dramedy series, Involved, created by Omarion.
To find the top talent for the series, five finalists worked alongside celebrity reader, Lance Gross, who performed a scene live with them in front of a festival audience, before a panel of judges including Omarion, Romeo Miller (ALLBLK’s A La Carte), Brett Dismuke (Head of Content, ALLBLK & WE tv), Nikki Love (SVP, Development & Production) and casting director Leah Daniels-Butler who selected the winner on the spot.
The winner was announced as Ashanti Harris who excitedly posted about the moment on Instagram.
Following that, a big bash ensued at the ALLBLK Pool Party.
