The Black Women's  Film Festival will screen a variety of short films curated by the New York-based New Negress Film Society. Each film is produced by an emerging black woman filmmaker and will feature some unique genres and perspectives. There will be a talkback session with the visiting filmmakers after the closing credits.

The film line-up includes:

  • Afronauts: Directed by Frances Bodomo - 16th July 1969: America prepares to launch Apollo 11. Thousands of kilometers away, a ragtag group of Zambian exiles is trying to beat America to the Moon.
  • Seventh Grade: Directed by Stefani Saintonge - Everyone is growing up except Patrice. But when a raunchy rumor threatens her best friend's reputation, she's forced to join the party and embrace adolescence.
  • Cakes Da Killa: NO HOMO: Directed by Ja'Tovia Gary - Born Rashard Bradshaw, Cakes Da Killa is a 22-year-old hip hop artist. As an openly gay man he is not your run of the mill rapper, but he just might be your new favorite.
  • Pain Revisited: Directed by Dyani Douze and Nontsikelelo Mutiti - This audiovisual project re-imagines the black body in pain as an agent of potentiality through art and collaboration.
