For the past two years we, Berette, Mateó, and Savita, have committed our time and love of films to programming screenings, panels and watch parties representing artists from across the African diaspora for free public engagement. Your gift, whatever the amount, will help us to sustain our growth by collectively funding our programs in 2022.

Your individual gift will help us continue to:
offer free programs, like all programs we’ve offered since we started in 2019
amplify artists, filmmakers, and film scholars, while compensating them for their work
fund our annual programs for Black Music Month and the AFTER DARK Horror series, and to start new programs with guest curators
provide meaningful partnership support of local creators and community orgs in Seattle, without whom we just could not even consider doing this work!
