ABOUT THE FESTIVAL:
Founded in 2001 and debuting in 2002, the International Black Women’s Film Festival screens media by and/or about Black women from around the world in non-stereotypical, non-pornographic roles. IBWFF combats negative stereotyping of Black women in film, television and media. The International Black Women’s Film Festival explores the social, aesthetic and political contexts of Black women in society through film, television and media, and how Black women are viewed through the moving image while at the same time being rendered voiceless and invisible.
