Since our founding in 1997, Blackfilm has been a leading brand in connecting the African-American film community to a global audience. In 1999, Blackfilm presented its first national film screening series that showcased the works of independent filmmakers of color. The film series has screened at the Lincoln Center in New York City, the Writer’s Guild of America in Los Angeles, the Museum of Contemporary Art in Chicago, The Rialto Center in Atlanta, the U.S. Navy Memorial Foundation in DC, and the African-American Museum in Detroit.
Today, Blackfilm is a respected media outlet and publisher of film, television, theatre, and digital editorial, news and entertainment content. Our mission is to promote and support diversity in filmmaking. We have and will continue to bring groundbreaking films to audiences that might not otherwise be available.
