Well, I promised you a secret. Black Chick Media is happy to announce our partnership with the first annual Columbus Black International Film Festival! To say we’re excited would be putting it mildly. Given our longstanding relationships with film festivals across the country, we’re excited to be able to lend our services to a festival that is homegrown.
Created by Columbus based filmmaker Cristyn Steward, CBIFF’s primary objective is to showcase Black filmmakers locally, nationally and internationally while, highlighting a spectrum of stories told by people of the African diaspora. The festival will also provide an advantage for filmmakers and the community to learn about the film industry through educational workshops and panel discussions, a safe space to showcase film and an opportunity to network with the filmmakers in the city.
Columbus is the heart of America and home to some of the most creative Black filmmakers in the country. CBIFF will showcase new and emerging talent as well as talent that has represented the city for years.
August 4-6, we’ll see you there.
