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 annual event showcasing content that confronts the social and economic issues today facing Black and Brown communities in the United States. Its mission is to amplify the voices of the marginalized, focusing on the imperative of social change. The festival program includes screenings of films (narratives, documentaries, and shorts) on subjects related to racism, equity, education, healthcare, immigration, and LGBTQ+ rights, as well as moderated conversations with activists, authors and academicians. The SJNFF is presented by Film Life Foundation in partnership with Sony Pictures, its founding sponsor. The second annual SJNFF will take place February 22-24, 2024, in Los Angeles.
We appreciate your financial support as we work to eradicate racism and level the playing field for Black & Brown Americans.
