Celebrating the upcoming 22nd AAWIC Film Festival, this monthly series highlights the works of African American Women In Cinema A-list members. This online presentation features shorts, webisodes, and feature films. This unique program enables our viewing audience to support women of color filmmakers through African American Women In Cinema Organization.
With a small donation per film view, the audience is able to support and view the works of these talented filmmakers. Each participating AAWIC A-list member will receive a grant.
We are pleased to inform you of our August Grand Prize winner, Ashley Ellis, director of the short film, Fixed. Congratulations are also extended to the film’s writer, Porcha Evans.
We want to thank all of our very talented filmmakers for participating in the the AAWIC Online Media Series. We look forward to seeing more of their works in the future.
“Programs such as the AAWIC Media Series are so important to highlight the visions of African American women who may not otherwise have the opportunity to showcase their works via other platforms. It’s imperative that these types of programs be supported to continue to share our work with the masses.
I would like to encourage any African American women in cinema, whether they are behind or in front of the camera, or on the page reading this with an idea, to study their craft and go for it. Be true to yourself and tell the stories you want to see. We need your voice and vision. Keep going!”
— Porcha Evans
The September AAWIC Online Media Series has been extended to Thursday, October 15th
Donation: $5 per Film Rental
C’EST MOI — In 1734, a black slave was tried, tortured and executed for burning down the city of Montréal. Some say she was a scapegoat and racially discriminated for a crime she did not commit; while others hold her up as a symbol of rebellion against white colonization. C’est Moi explores the collision of the past as it meets the present in the forgotten story of an important figure in Black Canadian History. (Director: Howard J. Davis)
