We Need Your Support

The Black Alphabet Film Festival will be held this year on Friday, August 18, 2017-Saturday, August 19, 2017 at The Reva and David Logan Center for the Creative Arts. To ensure the success of the film festival, we seek contributions to help defray the costs associated with the event, so that all funds raised can go directly toward creating the best event possible for our community. Generous donors have been the key to our success in the past and have made it possible for Black Alphabet to continue to celebrate the stories of Black LGBTQ-identified people through the art of film. We hope that we can count on your support to help us share these important stories with our community.

If you have attended or have volunteered at either of BAFF's previous three festival outings, you know that we strive to serve our community by bringing great programming in premiere venues across the city. With your support we can continue to grow and reach our goal bringing expanded entertainment value to your summer.
