Frameline Talk: Sugar in My Bowl: AA Representation in Queer Cinema

SECTION: Frameline Talks | Free | Streaming

The African American queer experience is abundant, varied, multi-dimensional, and also underrepresented in queer cinema, festivals, and media. This panel is a conversation aimed at taking stock of where queer African American representation is and how we lay the groundwork to support queer Black filmmakers in telling their stories. This is also an opportunity to look forward and chart the future of African American representation in queer cinema. This conversation is the beginning of a longer process to create the groundwork to support queer Black filmmakers in telling queer Black feature-length stories.
