Queer Black TV

Workshop with Aymar Jean Christian (co-founder of Open TV)

Satuday, 2 June, 12 am – 4 pm

Location: alpha nova & galerie future, Am Flutgraben 3, 12435 Berlin

In 1962, a group of young German filmmakers came together at the Oberhausen film festival to articulate their demands for more support and distribution for their films. Inspired by the demands of the Oberhausen Manifesto, in this intimate exchange we want to ask what would a manifesto for Black, independent filmmaking look like today? Funding, resources and distribution channels for independent films – in this web content clinic with Open TV co-founder Aymer Christian, participants will get tailored advice on how to bring audiences to their internet-based media. Open TV is the Chicago-based web channel that hosts and supports POC-authored web series, including the much-watched “Brown Girls”.

The Clinic is aimed at female identified, non-binary and trans* artists with an interest in and/or experience with film and video practice. Black women* and women* of color will be prioritized in the registration process due to limited available space. We request your binding registration by Wednesday, 30 May 2018 via the following e-mail address: mail@alpha-nova-kulturwerkstatt.de
