To all who volunteered for the FADE2BLACK1 (F2B1) Film Festival!


The F2BFF , starts the buzz on the history of Black American Film. Remember, F2B is NOT a competition but a celebratory retrospective history of Black American Film from its beginnings in 1910 to the Present. Under the auspices of BLACK FOLKS MAKE MOVIES, F2B, is an annual, education based event tracing the contributions of Black American filmmakers decade by decade.

Now we're looking towards our next go 'round, FADE2BLACK2 and volunteering is still not just about selling advance & day of ticket sales, wearing a special badge, showing people to their seats or watching movies for free, it's also about setting up & tearing down before & after each screening, helping organize and present this Spring's BFMM Fundraiser, marketing & advertising sales for the printed Festival Program, and more. All are needed to organize, run and move this Special Event forward to its Fall 2018 incarnation - promising to be even MORE intense than this year.

We're looking for the following:

  • BFMM Event/Screening Volunteers

  • F2B2 Pre-Registration;

  • Greeters;

  • Marketing & Promotion

  • Screenings Assistance;

  • Workshop Assistance and more...


People are needed to help with all areas of Black Folks Make Movies. With our various screening programs and other special events, assistance is necessary for 

  • Seating;

  • Space setup & tear-down;

  • Ticket takers/sales at the door (when ticketed event);

  • Research;

  • Administration;

  • Marketing/promotion and more.
