About BWFN

Established in 1997, the Black Women Film Network (BWFN) was founded to prepare black women to enter the film and television industries. The organization seeks to preserve the voice of these women through film and educational programs that empower and inform. A 501(c)3 non-profit, BWFN provided student scholarships, hosts screenings and workshops, and honors individuals who have excelled in this difficult industry.
