Deltas of Charlotte Foundation's mission is stengthening the community by implementing and supporting programs that improve the quality of life for women and their families in the greater Charlotte region.

In the past, our film showcase provided a platform where women directors, writers and producers could share their talents to new audiences creating a legacy for the next generation of women filmmakers. In our 16th year, we began highlighting talented youth in film with the addition of college and high school student categories. Most recently we extended our platform to both men and women directors, writers, and producers.

  • The Legacy of Black Women Film Showcase was amazing. The hospitality demonstrated was a breath of fresh air. They selected 10 films out of 150 submissions. I was honored to be a part. Great job!

    The Film Showcase was amazing. The space was warm and inviting. I screened my short film, Guilty, at the film showcase. The Lady's of Delta were extremely helpful and welcoming. The film makers selected had reserved seating, which I enjoyed. The common question the filmmakers had was is there going to be an award given to the Festival's Best. I really don't care if they do or don't because I had a great time.
