What is Black Alphabet?
Black Alphabet is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization formed in Chicago, Illinois. Our premier program is the Black Alphabet Film Festival (BAFF), a film festival designed and dedicated to showcasing works by and about the Black LGBTQ/SGL community. Our mission is to empower our community by promoting, nurturing and celebrating the stories of Black LGBTQ-identified people through the art of film.
Black Alphabet Film Festival is returning in 2018
Since the festival’s inaugural year, BAFF has featured more than 70 films and shorts with 3 international films to our credit. BAFF is excited to return this November and bring feature, short and documentary films that focus on the Black LGBT experience and bringing the work of Black LGBT writers, directors and producers to the city of Chicago.
