2023 Essence Film Festival

Fast Dreams is an Official Selection for the 2023 Essence Film Festival.

With its roots deeply entrenched in celebrating African American culture, THE 2023 ESSENCE FILM FESTIVAL (EFF) , exceeded all expectations as the premiere collision of Black creativity and innovation. Fast Dreams, an official selection of the festival, seems to echo the haunting words of the poet Langston Hughes, who admonished —


Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

From The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes published by Alfred A. Knopf/Vintage
