The Power of Storytelling to Showcase Black Humanity & Advance Racial Equality
Film Life Foundation is a nonprofit organization founded by American Black Film Festival creators Jeff and Nicole Friday and their sons Edison and Ellis. The organization is dedicated to spearheading diversity and inclusion initiatives in the entertainment industry as well as bringing people of different backgrounds, cultures and perspectives closer together using the transformative medium of film. It is our collective responsibility to marshal our resources, raise our voices and take action at the forefront of the heavyweight fight against the scourge of racism!
The Social Justice Now Film Festival (SJNFF) is an global showcase of content that confronts the social and economic issues facing the United States' black and brown communities. Through a curated film program, community conversations and impact events, we aim to rally a coalition committed to amplifying the voices of the marginalized and creating real and lasting, social and political change. The first annual event will take place online from October 21st through October 25th, leading up to the 2020 election.
We appreciate your financial support as we work to eradicate racism and level the playing field for Black & Brown Americans.
