Guess what? Black Feminist Film School is featured in the Fall 2012 (#56) issue of BITCH magazine.  We are happy to have a two-page spread on our vision and work in a cutting edge national magazine designed as a feminist response to pop-culture.  That’s what we do too!!!!
Check out the spread to see our shout outs to:
Yvonne Welbon and sistersincinema.com
Q-roc.tv (the new network for the LGBTQ community where the Mobile Homecoming TV series will be featured this fall)
Aishah Simmons and afrolezproductions.com
Allied Media Projects (alliedmedia.org)
and Charis Books and More (charisbooksandmore.com)

From Black Feminist Film School’s blog:

Born out of our frustration with the glaring exclusion of films by, about or for Black women in Julia’s film school experience and our deep love for the possibility of Black feminism in all forms,  Black Feminist Film School is a collaboration between Black feminist scholar/filmmaker Alexis Pauline Gumbs, PhD and Black feminist filmmaker/scholar Julia Roxanne Wallace, MDiv.
Our project has 2 key components:
1. Is there Black feminist tradition in film? Make space for a discourse about Black feminism in film and a conceptual framework in which contemporary filmmakers and theorists of film can participate in, measure, look out for and/or critique he presence or possibility of Black feminism specifically in the medium of film/video by
screenings and discussions of rare/underdistributed films by Black women directors/writer/producers in our hometown of Durham, North Carolina and around the country.
online forums on this site by Black feminist scholars about the possibility of Black feminism in important films by Black women
sharing information about the locations of rare/hard to see films by Black feminist filmmakers
developing a curriculum on Black feminist film, piloted in a community setting
2. Where my Black feminist filmmakers at?  Infuse Black feminist community, and in particular under-represent Black women and genderqueer filmmakers and future filmmakers with the skills to use film to express their visions and transform our society by
hosting a series of accessible community workshops that share the skills of script-writing, producing, gaffing, lighting, editing, sound and all the other skills crucial to making high quality films
creating partnerships between existing institutions/equipment sources and potential Black feminist filmmakers
building community between existing Black feminist filmmakers, with an emphasis on queer and genderqueer Black filmmakers
creating an all queer of color and allied cast and crew for Julia’s upcoming film!
