  • We had a wonderful experience with the Black. Femme Supremacy Film Fest. During these unprecedented times they really did a superb job putting a great fest together. As filmmakers, we were so appreciative of the clear lines of communication and support throughout the entire process. Kudos to everyone!

    We had a superb time in this festival!

    This was the first for Sweet Rind but with the high level of communication/responsiveness and assistance from Black Femme Supremacy FF, we didn't feel like newcomers. Even after the festival ended, resources and opportunities for development as filmmakers were still sent our way.

    We highly recommend this festival and it will always have a special place in our hearts. When we collect our first award, BFSFF will be on our gratitude list!

    Love and Legacy,
    Sweet Rind the Film

  • This was a lovely inclusive experience. The team was efficient, had great communication (down to sending graphics and scheduling tech rehearsal for Q&A) and were kind, personable, and enthusiastic about our work. We had a great time!!!

    This festival really caters to the filmmaker. It was nurturing and intimate. They. have cultivated a great energy! The talk backs were amazing as well. I will always submit my projects here :)
