Black Femme Supremacy Film Festival
A grassroots endeavor to connect Black Femmes throughout the African diaspora through the medium of film. A film festival that is quite possibly too future for its own good. Meaning we center Femme identifying Black people in our programing. The film and media industry has been historically centered around white males. This festival encourages filmmakers who are on the margins to come together and find community within ourselves. We want to re-envision the Black Femme as a global protagonist and universal archetype. Since our first festival in spring 2018 we’ve screened over 40 short films from Black filmmakers of varying ethnicities and nationalities.
We imagine the Black Femme as a global protagonist and universal archetype. And we screen films of any genre that center Black Femme protagonists or are made by Black Femme filmmakers.
The niche market that we cater to at our festival is quite literally the future. These are the heads of households who not only influence the minds of the youth but the checking accounts of the family and community at large. We aim to appeal to the whole of who our audience is, as so often Black Femmes are forced to choose between their blackness or their queerness. This is a festival that celebrates both.
