We seek to break barriers in the film industry by disrupting established paths into film production, opening new doors and fostering diversity behind the camera. We educate and mentor young artists to provide them with the skills and opportunities they need to become leaders in their field.
Film & Storytelling
We empower young voices of African descent to tell their unique and diverse stories that may otherwise not be heard. We believe using film in this way will advance social justice and help revolutionize culture.
NPF Summer Film
Through our work we create stories that foster healing, build empathy, and lead to real world solutions.
We value activism through cinematic arts. We believe in grassroots leadership and storytelling as a vehicle for social change.
