Ways to Give

Support the mission and vision of the BFCA

The Black Film Center & Archive’s 40-year legacy and growth has been generously supported through financial gifts and the material contributions of filmmakers, artists, scholars, collectors, and other individuals.

Find out more about how to support our mission and growth, as we continue to move the study and discussion of worldwide Black cinema from the margins to the center of the conversation.

“Every historian of the multitude, the dispossessed, the subaltern, and the enslaved is forced to grapple with the power and authority of the archive and the limits it sets on what can be known, whose perspective matters, and who is endowed with the gravity and authority of historical actor.”
