In collaboration with WADFF, this festival will also showcase films presented by ReelWorks, a nonprofit that mentors, inspires, and empowers underserved youth to share their stories through filmmaking.

EVENT Information: WADFF will take place over 2 days, live at the Billie Holiday Theater, 1368 Fulton Street, Brooklyn, NY. The event will occur on Friday, June 9, from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm, and on June 10, from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.

For more information about the festival, please follow us on Facebook, IG, and Twitter.

Mission & Objective: To showcase films that are centered around the theme of Linkages: Women, Their Families, Neighborhoods, and the Global Community, and to support the artistic development of Women filmmakers of African Descent by providing a supportive exhibition platform, offering stipends to participants, and seeking industry opportunities that will help to expose the filmmakers’ works and further their careers.

About WADFF: The media constantly bombards us with negative images of people of African descent. Our positive accomplishments, uplifting experiences, and gifts to humanity get little attention. The Brooklyn Chapter believes it is vitally important that our legacy be maintained, nurtured and preserved and it is our responsibility to shape the public’s perception of who we are as a people. Through the medium of film, filmmakers of African descent document and relay the stories of our past, present, and future. They have become the new historians – “preservers of our legacy.
