Project Details

What We Need
  • 1-2 page press release that can be distributed to news outlets
Additional Details

We need a press release that will launch our new Critical Juncture program, which will offer resources including technology, equipment, and grants for LBTQIA+ BIPOC filmmakers. The release should focus on racial equity and creating concrete change, and the ways that our organization, our impact, and who we serve offers a refreshing change.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have style guide, comms strategy, project components, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have foundation report outlining need for this project, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $1,348 , allowing us to direct more resources and services to our LBTQIA+ BIPOC community.

This project will allow QWOCMAP to increase earned media and public support for this project. This will increase services and resources to LBTQIA+ BIPOC filmmakers, who are often pushed out of the field due to lack of resources. By increasing the visibility of this project, and its potential impact, it will have a lasting effect on our organization and the community we serve.

Project Plan

About The Org

Our Mission

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's vision nurtures filmmakers as artist-activist leaders for social change.

What We Do

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.

In 2000, we launched our free Filmmaker Training Program with the goal to nurture LBTQ people of color filmmakers as artist-activist leaders for social justice. This award-winning program provides free, professional, artistically rigorous filmmaking workshops that equip participants with concrete technical skills, practical artistic knowledge and tangible leadership tools. It has nurtured the creation of 425 films and lead U.S. production of films by, for, and about the population we serve: African Descent/Black, Asian, Chicanx/Latinx, First Nations/Native American/ American Indian/Indigenous (Two Spirits), Native Hawaiian & Pacific Islander, Southwest Asian, North African/Arab, Middle Eastern, Muslim, South Asian (SWANA/AMEMSA), and Mixed-Race lesbian, bisexual, queer women (cisgender and transgender), and gender nonbinary and transgender people of color (of any orientation). For 18 years, it has fostered equity in film as the only media arts organization in the nation, and the first of four in the world, that actively invests in, develops, and nurtures, the creativity and leadership of LBTQ people of color.
