BlackMade: A Virtual Open Mic & Film Screening (East Coast Edition)
Join us Thursday, March 24th at 6 PM ET for BlackMade (East Coast Edition) a Virtual Open-Mic and Film Screening event as we center and celebrate Black Art and Black Stories!
The Black TV & Film Collective is intentional about centering and celebrating Black creatives of all ages and stages.
A Part of Our History
The art of storytelling is a major part of our history as Black people across the world. Our songs, stories and images have brought us strength in trials, restored hope for the future and reminded us of our beauty and brilliance.
It’s on brand for us to use storytelling, of many forms, to celebrate our rich cultural history across the diaspora!
Join us for a night of film, spoken word, monologues and more!
Coming to the Stage…
We’re kicking off the evening by introducing…YOU! Do you have a monologue, spoken word or song to share that highlights the beauty and diversity in Black culture? The mic is ready for you! Submit here for a chance to perform live!
For Us, By Us
Next, we’re introducing the films that will be screened. These films keep Black life and culture, in all its diversity, at the center. We’re welcoming stories that highlight the idea that “Black people are not a monolith”.
Have a film that centers Black life, experience and culture? Submit here, for a chance to be featured!
Finally, the night will come to a close with a Q & A featuring the filmmakers of the screened films.
So Nice, We’re Doing it Twice!
We’re splitting this major event into TWO nights! RSVP to catch us on East Coast time on Thursday, March 24th from 6 – 8 PM ET. and on West Coast time on Friday, March 25th from 6 – 8 PM PT.
We’re looking forward to celebrating Black art and Black culture with you!
