RSVP FOR THE 2022 FILM FESTIVAL, OR VIEW THE FILM SCHEDULE BELOW.

The Black Alphabet Film Festival began in 2013 in response to the lack of representation of films that tell the unique stories of the Black LGBTQ/SGL+ community. Now in its 9th year of existence, the Festival continues to promote filmmakers and stories that portray the diverse people and experiences of the community, as well as create opportunities to have discussions with filmmakers that are centered around those unique experiences.

The Festival currently operates in two permanent locations (Chicago & Cincinatti), and since the COVID-19 pandmic of 2020, also continues to feature a virtual component to allow access to a wider audience. In 2023, we will expand the in-person festival to another 3 major metropolitan areas within the United States.

If you are a director or filmmaker, you may submit your film for screening at one or more upcoming festivals.

You may review a list of past films screened by Black Alphabet, and get information about the films.

Visit the Upcoming Events page for more information, or to reserve tickets for the upcoming Festival and other events.
