Black Ohio Film Group

connecting black filmmakers

We want to see our lives dramatized on the screen as we are living it, the same as other people, the world over. - Oscar Micheaux

OUR MISSION + Vision

Our mission is to provide film resources and a community for Black filmmakers in Ohio to connect, collaborate, and inspire one another to create new, high-quality films that uplift and inspire our communities.

Our vision is to increase films created by and for Black folks, uplifting the spectrum of the Black experience in film.

Why we exist

We exist to make it easier for Black filmmakers to find each other to create films in Ohio. We are throughout the state – Columbus, Cleveland, Cincinnati, Toledo, Youngstown, Dayton, Akron, and more. 

Black Ohio Film Group is here to connect filmmakers with other creators, the community, education, resources, and opportunities to make our films stand out!

Don’t worry if you’re not a filmmaker – you can still get involved! You can become a BOFG Supporter by donating or apply to become a board member!
