VIRTUAL VERSION - BlaQ ArTed Short Film Fest
Time & Location
About the Event
The BlaQ ArTed Short Film Fest, the culminating event of The East Bay Queer Healing Arts Center’s BlaQ ArTed Digital Storytelling Internship highlights the genius and innovation of Black Queer, Trans, and NonBinary transitional aged (18-25 years) artists by providing them with the equipment, guidance, and access to create short films that authentically represent who they are and the issues of importance to them. In the films being screened throughout this festival, the issues addressed include teen homelessness, body-shaming, misogynoir, Black American identity formation in an Anti-Black society, confronting transphobia, and fostering youth resilience.
We are offering The BlaQ ArTed Short Film Fest on demand starting Monday, Nov. 23rd at noon! Tickets are offered via sliding scale from $10 to whatever you'd like to offer in support of our programming. Your ticket will give you access on-demand via a private link that will be sent to you after the purchase of your ticket. This link will allow you to watch the short films as many times as you'd like until the end of the festival at 11:59pm Saturday, Nov. 28th. An encore virtual screening with a live-streamed filmmaker Q+A will take place on Sunday November 28, 2020 on the festival’s closing night.
