Launched in 2021, Black Female Filmmakers is a film community organization based in Atlanta, GA. Our mission at BFF is to create a space where black self-identifying women in film can thrive in telling their stories. We want to pave the way for black women filmmakers by providing support in the form of mentorship and resources. Women in film of all levels of experience are welcome to join.
We believe in EQUALITY, both on camera and behind the scenes. In order to achieve this, we strive for INDEPENDENCE through education and empowerment. Black Female Filmmakers is a space of sisterhood, development and growth. All who support black self-identifying women in film are welcome.
