A film challenge to honor the black experience.
This contest is inspired by the swelling impact of the Black Lives Matter movement and is meant to add to the many voices intent on the urgency of recognizing, honoring & lifting up Black Stories in the United States & around the world. Filmmakers from within San Diego County and throughout the globe are invited to participate. Filmmakers will have until February 15th, 2021 to write, edit, shoot, and submit an under 15 - minute film based on or inspired by their experiences.
The black experience is one that has many faces, voices, and tones. This competition is looking for films that honor the black experience in a way that is not solely limited to the pain, struggles, and valid anxieties of black people across the world. We also seek stories that acknowledge black everyday life: black joy, black excellence, black humor, black cuisines, black spirituality, and black sexuality.
*The Black Lives Matter Film Challenge is associated with the worldwide movement but not associated with The Black Lives Matter organization and we are not a part of any political party.*
