Seattle Black Film Festival

The 2020 Seattle Black Film Festival has concluded! Thank you for the tremendous support for this year’s filmmakers, presenters, and organizers!

SBFF workshop, ‘Black Media Literacy in the Age of Black Lives Matter’, is a one-hour practical workshop examining how Blacks are represented in the media, and the information evaluation tools we can use to protect ourselves, our knowledge, and our people. Moderated by educator, librarian and Seattle Black Film Festival curator, Zola Mumford, with Karen Toering, founder, Gary International Black Film Festival; former Director, Langston Hughes African American Film Festival (now Seattle Black Film Festival).

SBFF’s Masterclass featured host, Shannan E. Johnson, leading a discussion on culture, craft, and career strategies. From this exclusive live event, special guests, writer/director Patrik-Ian Polk (Being Mary Jane; Punks) and Numa Perrier (JEZEBEL [Writer/Director]; Queen Sugar [Director]; Black & Sexy TV [Creator]), share a detailed yet easy-to-follow outline (“toolkit”) to serve as a tangible resource for artists creating content for the streaming, film, and broadcast worlds.
