Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project



Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project

Founded in 2000, Queer Women of Color Media Arts Project (QWOCMAP) creates, exhibits and distributes new films that authentically reflect the lives of queer women of color and address the vital social justice issues that concern multiple communities.

QWOCMAP bridges seemingly disparate populations through art, activism and relationship building to transform participants, audiences and communities. We increase access and participation in the arts by providing artistic programs that nurture new artists and engage new audiences. We expand the visibility and civic engagement of our communities to change the film industry and diversify the cultural fabric of American society.

We actively develop, nurture and invest in the creativity and leadership of Asian Pacific Islander (API), Black/African Descent, Chicana/Latina, Native American/Indigenous and Mixed-Race lesbian, bisexual, transgender and queer women filmmakers. QWOCMAP offers free programs to guarantee full access and participation in the arts for our marginalized community, especially young, low-income and immigrant queer women of color.

Our vision nurtures queer women of color filmmakers as artist-activist leaders to create systemic change and lead social justice movements that incorporate the power of art as cultural resistance and cultural renewal.

Our FREE Filmmaker Training Program nurtures artists and since 2003, it has produced over 200 films, the majority of existing American films by queer women of color. Our FREE annual Queer Women of Color Film Festival attracts standing-room-only audiences and has become the largest event of its kind by connecting films to social issues and partner organizations. Our Distribution Program educates the larger public and reaches large diverse audiences around the world.
