|“It’s an honor to showcase the work of so many talented filmmakers from around the world,” says festival director Mercendez Springer. “This year’s selections are imaginative, intense, and at times, hilarious. We never know what we’re going to get, but we usually end up with an amazing array of films that’s reflective of the creativity and masterful storytelling of Black women.”|
In addition to screening the featured selections, the festival will include filmmaker talk-backs and a post-event reception.
The BWFN Short Film Festival is a signature event of the Black Women Film Network, a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to preparing Black women to enter the film and television industries. Since 2004, the BWFN Short Film Festival has engaged hundreds of Black women filmmakers and provided a platform for these aspiring creatives to showcase their work.
The goal of the BWFN Short Film Festival is to connect participating filmmakers to opportunities that will advance their careers. Many festival contestants have gone on to accomplish great achievements in the film industry, including Amy Aniobi (co-executive producer, Insecure), Nneka Onuorah (director, Lizzo’s Watch Out for the Big Girls), Winter Dunn (director, Dear Mama), Kia Moses (director, Flight), Janlatae Mullins (director, Soul Fire), Maya Table (director, Hit the Road), and Sheena Carter (producer, Social Society).
