The first annual Harlem Doc Fest explores the cultural richness and history of Harlem along with critical issues impacting the community. This weekend-long curated festival of feature and short documentary films will present screenings throughout Harlem and include conversations with filmmakers, actors and scholars.

Harlem Stage is proud to host the opening of this dynamic new festival with a screening of The Remix, followed by a Q&A with special guests from the film.

Blige, Missy Elliot, and Lil’ Kim grew louder, so too did the influence of their female designers and stylists working behind the scenes.
