      Festival will be held again in New York from May 3 through May 6, 2001.

      This unique cultural event brings to the screen the dynamic spirit of

      Rainbow," as well as those made during the sixties and seventies. The works
      of directors from Cuba, France and Germany, as well as the U.S., will be
      shown, including films about international resistance movements. The
      festival will hold question and answer sessions with filmmakers, Hip-Hop
      artists and members of the original Black Panther Party, and present
      exciting panel discussions, including one on the international impact of
    the
