This year, the 2012 American Black Film Festival (ABFF) was better than ever, despite the inclement weather. Since Cadillac was an official sponsor for the second year in a row, Cadillac shuttles were aplenty and Don Butler, VP of marketing for GM, was ubiquitous, popping up (and holding his own) everywhere from the Cadillac Lounge with Robert Townsend to the ABFF awards with Jeff and Nicole Friday. Here is a photographic recap of some of the highlights. Stay tuned to Simply Rides for more! And please take a quick peek at the new Cadillac XTS–one of two vehicles Cadillac debuted at the exclusive, red carpet, A-list event. Photos by Vince Harper.
