Black Film Club

The purpose of the Black Film Club is to expand the visibility of black-oriented films and filmmakers at SF State University; highlight the contributions of professional black screenwriters, directors, cinematographers and other film professionals to the cinematic artform; provide a support circle for student film projects in any state of production (screenwriting, principal photography, editing, etc.) that depict black experiences and/or thematically draw upon black perspectives; to render film production services (paid and unpaid) for real-world clients and organizations who have demonstrated support of black upliftment.
