QWOCMAP FILMMAKER TRAINING PROGRAM

Each year, QUEER WOMEN OF COLOR MEDIA ARTS PROJECT offers free workshops through our award-winning Filmmaker Training Program.

Our workshops serve queer women of color, gender nonconforming and transgender people of color from teenagers to elders.

To better serve our community, deepen social justice dialogue, and address issues specific to different cultures, QWOCMAP has conducted Filmmaker Training Program workshops for specific populations: youth (ages 18 to 25), folks of color on the butch-genderqueer-transgender spectrum, Asian/Pacific Islander, Black/African descent, ChicanXs/LatinXs, Native American/Indigenous/First Nations, and SWANA/AMEMSA (Southwest Asian, North African/Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, South Asian) queer women of color, gender nonconforming and transgender people of color. We have also offered workshops focused on immigration and marriage equality.

Intermediate workshops, and advanced training through QWOCMAP Productions, are available to participants who have completed a film through our Introductory workshops.

Our Film & Freedom Academy condenses our Filmmaker Training Program curriculum into intensive 4 day workshops, which are offered in partnership with LGBTQ people of color organizations in underserved regions of California and the U.S.
