2020 has been a push for us all. We had to cancel our March live performance of Sovereign due to COVID 19 . Fortunately for us, we were already in partnership with Seattle's Northwest Film Forum, who was the perfect partner to highlight queer black women film makers!
We want to invite the world into this year's Sovereign, by taking advantage of the current climate and use our online platform to connect queer black women from around the world. We are looking for the following:
Full Feature Films
15-30 minute Shorts
2-10 minute Mini Movies
There is NO application fee and each movie chosen must directed by a queer black woman. Each film maker will receive a stipend if chosen, and will need to participate in an online discussion with festival participants.
We are accepting all film submissions on the online platform Freeway. Apply here:
