2017 BLACKSTAR FILM FESTIVAL

MEMBERSHIP

August 3-6,2017

Become a Blackstar

This summer, from August 3-6, 2017, the BlackStar Film Festival will expose over 4,000 people to independent films by and about black people from around the globe.

Black identity is not small or narrow. Yet often, when we watch movies created by the major studios we see the same stories repeated. Through the screening of more than 60 films by independent filmmakers from five continents, BlackStar disrupts stereotypes and creates a visual conversation about the diversity of blackness that carries on long after the credits roll.

Membership Benefits

Experience expanded access to BlackStar and help to support one of the greatest cultural treasures in the world. An annual BlackStar membership includes exclusive benefits all year round and during the annual festival, the first week of August.

If you are interested in a “more than membership” engagement experience within the BlackStar donor circle, please contact us at members@blackstarfest.org for expanded opportunities.
