Robert Hunter, the Cleveland native actor started out acting at the age of 16 in his high school theatre. After lackluster grades and no desire for a regular 9 to 5 he saw acting as his only way out of the under privileged city. He enrolled at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and after spending two years in Los Angeles, Robert managed to receive awards and get general meetings with some of NBC Universal's top casting execs. One of Robert's most prestigious award came as the Star Project Winner at The American Black Film Festival. So far he is the youngest to receive such an award and plans on returning with projects attached.
With a humble heart and strength of the higher power Hunter believes that staying true to his craft will pay off in the end. And with that, he looks forward to taking intensive training with the Oxford Shakespeare Company and to be trained by Shakespearean powerhouses, Cicely Berry and John Barton.

Since its inception, the ABFF has screened more than 450 films and has rewarded and redefined artistic excellence in independent filmmaking.
