We are ecstatic to announce our partnership with the Columbus Museum of Art for a special lm screening of ALTERNATE ENDINGS, RADICAL BEGINNINGS to mark A Day With(out) Art on Thursday, November 30, 2017 at 6:30pm. Films by Cheryl Dunye, Kia LaBeija, and Thomas Allen Harris, among numerous others, will be featured. This is in celebration and honor of World AIDS Day.

Visual AIDS started A Day With(out) in 1989 as a day of mourning and action in response to the AIDS crisis. This year, Visual AIDS commissioned seven artists to create short videos that prioritize Black narratives. Curated by Erin Christovale and Vivian Crockeet, the program consists of videos by Mykki Blanco, Cheryl Dunye & Ellen Spiro, Reina Gosset, Thomas Allen Harris, Kia Labeija, Tiona McClodden, and Brontez Purnell. To introduce the films and to give voice to those impacted by the ongoing epidemic, CMA partnered with Black Chick Media and the Columbus Black International Film Festival; CATCO; Creative Control Fest; Equitas Health; Planned Parenthood; and Stonewall Columbus.

Black Chick Media along with the Columbus Black International Film Festival will introduce the film The Labyrinth by Tiona Nekkia McClodden.

Please come out and support. The event is free; however, registration is recommended. Visit http://bit.ly/2jfkzIC or call 614.629.0359 to RSVP.

 

Drum Roll Please…

What a fantastic film festival weekend.  Congratulations to all filmmakers who presented at the first annual Columbus Black International Film Festival!  What a great addition to the city’s creative landscape.  If you’re a part of the local Black creative community, I don’t have to tell you about the unequal representation, unfairness in grant-making, and downright ignorance and lack of support for our artistic endeavors; so, having an entire weekend event dedicated to Black Excellence was not only needed, but more than welcome.  Bravo Cristyn Steward.  We can’t wait to see what CBIFF 2018 brings.

Do you have a point of view and a story to tell on the big screen? If you’re ready to start making movies, this workshop will give you the nuts and bolts of making your short film. (No prior experience is necessary; just come ready to learn.)

We’ll go through all phases of the process:
PRE-PRODUCTION: putting the production together
PRODUCTION: shooting the movie
POST-PRODUCTION: getting your short film finished, polished and festival-ready

You don’t need a million dollars, but you DO need vision, commitment, organization and know-how. We’ve got the knowledge —- the rest is up to you!  Get ready to learn guerilla filmmaking at its finest. Let’s get it!
