“Sabira Cole Film Festival is an international juried feature and short film competition. SCFF awards prizes to emerging filmmakers in the 3 categories: Geraldine B Hill Award for children & youth, Sabira Cole Award for short form documentary, Sabira Cole Award for feature narrative or documentary. We centralize storytelling traditions of the Diaspora and global communities of color to control our image and narrative. We support and magnify the voices of tomorrow. SCFF was inspired by the decade long Sembéne Film Festival and was created to honor the legacy and memory of its leader Sabira Cole.” –Ogechi Chieke, Executive Director SCFF
Each night of SCFF will feature films varying in length and subject matter, based around connecting themes.
