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.

QWOCMAP uses film to shatter stereotypes and bias, reveal the lived truth of inequality, address the vital, intersecting issues that concern multiple populations, and build understanding and community around art and social justice.
QWOCMAP creates, exhibits, and distributes high-impact films that authentically reflect the lives of queer women of color (cisgender & transgender), and gender variant 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 filmmakers as artist-activist leaders for social change.
