Originally formed to create community in an industry where black female voices and stories are often suppressed, the New Negress Film Society (NNFS) is a collective of five filmmakers — Frances Bodomo, Ja’Tovia Gary, Kumi James, Stefani Saintonge, and Chanelle Aponte Pearson — who are dedicated to exhibiting, supporting, and raising consciousness around work by marginalized filmmakers. The group’s primary focus is on works and perspectives that break boundaries in film — both politically and artistically — with a special emphasis on genres and topics that are traditionally challenging to fund, create, and exhibit. The members of NNFS work together to workshop film projects, fundraise, and build audience for their work.

In partnership with the 55th Ann Arbor Film Festival.
