QWOCMAP builds power through film that radically centers our community to fundamentally transform the world where justice and equity are the norm.
QWOCMAP creates, exhibits, and distributes high-impact films that authentically reflect the lives of queer women of color (cisgender & transgender), gender nonconforming and transgender people of color (of any orientation), and address the vital, intersecting social justice issues that concern our multiple communities.
QWOCMAP’s vision nurtures filmmaker-activists to lead social justice movements that incorporate the power of art as cultural resistance and cultural resilience, cultural reclamation and cultural renewal.
QWOCMAP uses film to shatter stereotypes and bias, build community through compassionate public discussions, and strengthen movements for change.

QWOCMAP has inspired me to reach for my greatest dreams and the tools to make them come true.
Since 2000, we’ve been on a journey to transform what we see in film by developing leaders in the art of filmmaking and empowering social justice movements.
We continue to be inspired by the generosity of people like you, who contribute time and talent to support our critical work.
