FunkJazz Kafe’s ‘Diary Of A Decade’ Doc Coming To Detroit & Philadelphia

It's been a year since Diary of a Decade, the documentary film about Atlanta's legendary FunkJazz Kafe, premiered at the city's 2011 National Black Arts Fest and in that time it has racked up the accolades and admiration from audiences who've seen it. The film has been an official selection of the Pan-African Film Festival, Atlanta Film Festival, Philadelphia Independent Film Festival and the San Francisco Black Film Festival and the mastermind behind the FunkJazz Kafe movement and movie, Jason Orr, is taking Diary of a Decade on tour.

Screenings of Diary of a Decade are currently scheduled in Detroit and Philadelphia, with more cities to be added in the coming weeks and months. I have yet to see this doc, but I've heard nothing but good things about it and look forward to when there's a screening in the DMV. While I have to wait for my turn, music and movie lovers in Detroit can view the FunkJazz Kafe's story at the Charles H. Wright Museum of African American History on Saturday, July 28th at 7 pm. Tickets are on sale now via Eventbrite. In Philadelphia, Diary of a Decade will show at the first annual BlackStar Film Festival on Saturday, August 4th at the International House at 8 pm. Tickets are available for that screening via Ticketfly.
