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 11th annual Black Star Film Festival, happening August 3–7, featuring the work of Black, brown, and Indigenous artists and filmmakers.
The festival will take place both online and in-person, and will include screenings, panels, parties, a daily evening show, and other events.
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 film and media that represents our communities and movements for justice. Here’s a look at what we’re presenting:
