WILMINGTON, NC (WECT) -

The 15th Annual North Carolina Black Film Festival kicks off this week in Wilmington.

The festival runs September 15-18. 

In partnership with the Wilmington Jewish Film Festival, the festival will open with a film called Service to Man, which tells the story of a first-year white working-class Jewish boy from Brooklyn admitted to an all-black medical school in Nashville.

The festival also features Wilmington On Fire, a documentary about the 1898 Massacre in Wilmington. The film was recently featured in an article in The New Yorker.
