About Us

Willoughby Avenue, a Black-owned digital agency and publisher, has successfully established an audience that generates as many as 2M Impressions per month via social media. Our digital & print reach empowers creatives to promote their art year-round, well beyond the KINFOLK.FILM Festival.

KOLUMN, a digital publication, celebrates the lives of People of Color. We curate content globally, that focuses on historic, economic, political and social issues that impact our communities.

KINDR’D, a digital & print publication, shares the Travel, Art and Cultural experiences of People of Color. Published twice per year, KINDR’D is filled with personal stories that capture the discovery of new and familiar places, art, culture and of course, great food. Our photo-centric publication is anchored by the rich imagery of contributors, and contextualized by their written experiences.

Festival Venue

The KINFOLK.FILM Festival will be hosted at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History & Culture (RLM), a Smithsonian affiliate, and the East Coast’s largest African American museum occupying an 82,000 square-foot facility with ample permanent and special exhibition space, interactive learning environments, auditorium, resource center, oral history recording studio, museum shop, café, classrooms, meeting rooms, outside terrace and reception areas. The museum is located near Baltimore’s Inner Harbor at the corner of Pratt and President Streets.
