On October 9-11, 2020 Earth Pearl Collective wants to bring queer black women together from around the world for this years version of Sovereign. Sovereign has been Earth Pearl Collective's annual queer, black, one woman show festival since 2018. Because of the COVID 19 pandemic we are changing our festival to an online showcase of brilliant queer black women film makers from around the world. This is a joint partnership with Northwest Film Forum and The Hansberry Project. We are looking for a range of projects varying from feature length movies to experimental dance films. We look forward to highlighting you and your work.
Each chosen participant will receive a Sovereign swag bag, a published film review, and a participation stipend based on the length of film.
The director or lead creative on the film must identify as a queer black woman.
The above creative lead must be available for a live online discussion about the film.
The film must not be featured within one week of Festival dates October 9-11, 2020.
