Cinema Rising promotes the creation, exhibition and distribution of independent films that increase the visibility of women of color and consciously represent their life stories. It is a media platform by, for, and about women of color in film with a special emphasis on social justice. Cinema Rising works to close the digital divide between women of color filmmakers and mainstream media.
As the online streaming component of our company, Cinema Rising will include an archive of feature and short films. We will stream movies that are well known, as well as superb films that are relatively unknown.
Check back with us periodically, as we are in the midst of completing our massive and impressive Cinema Rising database and look forward to hosting its launch!
