The MUFF Society’s Reel Girl Talk screening series and Black Women Film! Canada are proud to present an exciting new showcase of short films made by Black female filmmakers. The Reel Girl Talk and Black Women Film! Canada Short Film Night will take place Wednesday, November 8, 2017 from 9 to 11 p.m. ET at Toronto’s Carlton Cinema.
Creators from across Canada are invited to submit their short films for consideration for the Reel Girl Talk and Black Women Film! Canada Short Film Night. All films submitted for consideration must be:
● Directed by a Black woman who is a Canadian citizen or resident
● No more than 30 minutes in length (including credit roll)
While films of all subject matters and genres will be considered, preference will be given to works that centre on Black characters and/or stories about the Black experience.
“We are so excited to be working with Reel Girl Talk to create this important showcase,” Ella Cooper, founder of Black Women Film! Canada, says. “There is so much talent in Canada that I can't wait for more audiences to see!”
“We hope this event kickstarts conversations about the filmmakers and the industry at large, encouraging other festivals, organizations and producers to take action to seek out and support these and other Black women in film in Canada,” Emily Gagne, producer of Reel Girl Talk, adds.
Submissions for the Reel Girl Talk and Black Women Film! Canada Short Film Night are open now and will close September 27, 2017 at 11:59 p.m. The final films will be selected during the first two weeks of October, and selected filmmakers will receive a screening fee following the event.
Tickets for the Reel Girl Talk and Black Women Film! Canada Short Film Night are available now through the Carlton Cinema.
Directly following the films, Black Women Film! Canada will host a short panel discussion.
