These shorts – created by and for Black femmes imagine the Black femme as a global protagonist and universal archetype. Consider this an appetizer to be followed by the main event – the opening of submissions for the second annual Black Femme Supremacy Film Festival coming fall 2019.
The Black Femme Supremacy Film Festival was created in 2018 to highlight the disparities Black female filmmakers face as well as shake up the notoriously elitist culture of film festivals. “Taste Test” is a collection of short films centering the Black femme as a global protagonist. The event also serves to inform the public of the opening of submissions to the 2019 Black Femme Supremacy Film Festival. Submissions will be handled through FilmFreeway.com.
Featuring selected short films from Cuba, Brazil, South Africa, Canada, and the United States the festival allows Black femme filmmakers the chance to create community amongst each and foster intercultural understanding through the medium of film in movie goers.
Upcoming Screening Dates:
Brooklyn, NY – May 2019
