Now in its 24th year, the Roxbury International Film Festival takes over three different venues in the Hub from June 23–July 2, showcasing features and short films by, for and about people of color. Script readings, panel discussions, live filmmaker appearances, workshops and other gatherings are also part of the proceedings that take place at the Museum of Fine Arts (MFA) in the Fenway, the Emerson Paramount Center in the Theatre District and Hibernian Hall in Roxbury. Opening night on June 23 at 6 p.m. features Remember Me: The Mahalia Jackson Story (pictured) at the MFA, which, on June 28 at 8 p.m., also hosts a free outdoor showing on its Huntington Avenue lawn of the romantic favorite Love Jones to mark the film’s 25th anniversary. Exclusive online offerings are available as well as part of ROXFILM@Home, a separately ticketed program that includes access to a selection of the festival’s movies from June 27–July 2 as well as streaming-only daily script reading sessions, documentary shorts and a closing Q&A.
