This is serious life saving and life changing work. It will be challenging and rewarding. It is not merely a workshop to gain filmmaking skills. It is not just a networking opportunity to gain crew for your projects. For ourselves and each other we seek to create a profoundly safe space; to develop a league of excellence, a language of love and transformation that allows us to create the world anew by every generative means we know.
Black Feminist Film School Summer Session (bffs Summer Session) will take place June - August 2014. We will be focusing on building skill and practice as Black Feminist storytellers using the filmmaking medium and accompanying art forms. Within the three month session we will cover all phases of filmmaking including research and writing, pre-production, production and post-production.
