Film Festival Trailer 2016

QWOCMAP creates, exhibits and distributes new films that authentically reflect the lives of queer women of color and address the vital social justice issues that concern multiple communities. We actively bridge seemingly disparate populations to transform and empower our filmmakers, audiences and communities through art, activism and community building.

We actively invest in, develop and nurture the creativity of emerging media artists who are Asian/Pacific Islander, African Descent/Black, Chicana/Latina, Native American/Indigenous/First Nations, South Asian, Southwest Asian/North African/Middle Eastern and Mixed-Race lesbians, bisexual, transgender, queer and questioning women in the Bay Area.

QWOCMAP provides professional training, equipment, screening opportunities and resources free of charge to guarantee full access to our traditionally underserved community, particularly young, low-income and immigrant queer women of color.

Our vision nurtures queer women of color filmmakers as artist-activist leaders to create systemic change and lead social justice movements that incorporate the power of art as cultural resistance and cultural renewal.
