Black Cinema Collective
We screen + examine local and global works of African + African diasporic filmmakers.
Black Cinema Collective (BCC) is a Washington-based group of artists and scholars who examine and celebrate works of African and African diasporic filmmakers through programmed screenings, watch parties, and community discussions. With both a Black Feminist and Black Global lens, we hold space for the complex existence and storytelling inventions of Diasporians. We consider intersectional histories and topical stories by supporting multiple forms of filmmaking from local and global artists, activists, documentarians, and organizers. Through our focused events on Black film and visual productions, we exercise agency and care as custodians and students of a broader spectrum of Afro-Diasporic cultures.
