The Hamilton Black Film Festival is an annual film festival that showcases cultural and traditional films of African/Caribbean, Native, Asian, Middle Eastern filmmakers and other films of ethnic inclusion. The Hamilton Black Film festival will give people from different parts of the world and ethnic backgrounds an accessible platform to showcase films that are made by and with visible ethnic minorities, demonstrating that Hamilton welcomes all people.
Our festival is distinct from other festivals because its primary purpose is to explicitly welcome ethnic minorities, nurturing their creative aspirations, providing support and resources to them such as training and mentorship on producing, directing, writing, and other film related resources.
Spirit of Inclusion
OUR SERVICES & CORE VALUES
The Hamilton Black Film Festival promotes unity and cultural integration and a positive image building for minorities in our community. It does not condone, support or engage in sentiments that are antagonistic to cultural relations, but rather seeks to celebrate our differences and cooperation in working together as citizens of Hamilton.
