A showcase of the best of black and white movies and screenplays in the modern era!

Festival will occur every single month.

This festival was created to celebrate the black and white aesthetics as a specific, peculiar and unique kind of artistic expression on film and video.

It also intends to showcase screenplays that the author visions is in B & W.

The image capture in the digital technology is born with colors but the artist's intuition often urges for the black and white production. This proves the newness and interest in an aesthetic that can only be communicated through black and white.

We will showcase a new festival every 3 months.

Films receive an audience feedback video of their film at the festival worth $200 in value.

All screenplays receive full feedback on their script. Winners get their work performed by professional actors and made into a promotional video.

We only accept films that are Black & White. And screenplays designed to be films in black and white.

NOTE: We accept films that are 51% in black and white. Some films can have color images as long as B&W is the main focal point.

Overall Rating
  • Since the pandemic I haven't been able to go to any live in person screenings of my film. The big thing I loved about this festival was the reaction/feedback video. After I got through my cringe stage of listening to people talk about my film, it ended up feeling like an incredibly nice warm hug. And made it feel like people actually did watch my film haha. Granted I know people have, but being I was never present, it always felt more theoretical. Anyways, it's been a while since I truly felt seen at a festival, but this one was very nice and I appreciate it a lot. So thank you.

    It was a pleasure to have my film selected for the Black and White Film Festival! This was such a good festival to be involved with because of the feedback (linked with LA Feedback Festival). Very professional and quick communication. Thank you!

    The good folks at the Black & White Film Festival have a great concept - present a diverse collection of short movies and provide feedback that helps filmmakers young and old learn. It promotes community; it promotes constructive and thoughtful dialogue, and...it's fun!
