A sterling silver cuff bracelet presented to Jeff Friday by the Mexican government at the inaugural Acapulco Black Film Festival (ABFF) held June 24-29, 1997. The bracelet is uniformly wide and tapers to rounded ends at the open gap area. The surface of the cuff is decorated with relief depictions of musical notes, stars, waves, martini glasses, a building on a beach with palm trees, a smiling sun, sock and buskin masks, a clapperboard, a film reel, and an ABFF logo. The ABFF logo resembles a stylized half rayed-sun with a half of an eye at the center and a film strip at the bottom. The interior of the cuff is smooth with a single stamp that reads [STERLING].
