Mission Statement

San Antonio Black International Film Festival (SABIFF) serves as a vehicle to support, advocate and showcase quality Black films and filmmakers international in scope, and expose all audiences to diverse industry professionals, impactful events, and films created by, for and about people of African Descent throughout the Diaspora.

Description

San Antonio Black International Film Festival was recently launched in February 2019, our goal is to present a variety of video/filmmakers and film professionals of African Descent, to audiences through their film products, genres, panel discussions, lectures, and training opportunities. SABIFF affirms that Black film matters. Movies in the form of narratives or documentaries, have the capacity to educate, enlighten, and entertain audiences. Our hope with presenting international films and interesting programming is to open the eyes of audience members, to get a better understanding of cultures, subject matters, and people who may feel marginalized. We aspire to elevate conversations, and bring light to stories that have been overlooked, stereotyped, or ignored by mass media.

SABIFF is excited to present another impactful film festival, in San Antonio, the 7th largest city in Texas. Volunteers are needed with skills in the areas of: social media, marketing, internet, graphic arts, accounting, and journalism. Event planning is on-going for festival pre-production, planning, as well as supporting the actual festival which runs for 4 days, the first weekend in October. 2021 festival developments are aimed to be both virtual/on-line at sabiff.tv, and physical at past partnership venues, contingent on the status of COVID19.
