Narrative power means being the teller of our own stories—and media, art, and culture have always been the driving force behind Team #MediaJustice’s fight for a world where we are all represented, connected, and free.
We’re proud to sponsor the 10th Annual BlackStar Film Festival, happening August 4–8, featuring 80 films from Black, brown, and Indigenous filmmakers representing 27 countries around the world.
The BlackStar Film Festival is an annual celebration of the visual and storytelling traditions of the African diaspora and of global communities of color, with virtual screenings, panels, and a daily morning show, plus select in-person screenings and parties in Philadelphia.
MediaJustice is proud to be a sponsor, lifting up and spotlighting films and media that represent our communities and movements for justice.
