FESTIVAL FOCUS: Queer Black Womenâs Films & Filmmakers
Join us for this inspiring celebration of queer Black women leaders in film and in our communities.
3 p.m. ($15)
Featured Panel - Representations of Queer Black Women in Film
In the words of filmmaker Julie Dash, the reason that so few films about Black women exist is that, "No one wants to be a Black woman for even two and a half hours." What does it mean then, to represent queer Black women onscreen? Join us for this ground-breaking discussion of the intersections of race, gender and sexuality and the celebration of films created in our own image!
