Harlem Stage on Screen offers a provocative and innovative selection of dramatic and documentary films by emerging and select established filmmakers of color.
The films and videos presented in this series are rarely adequately represented in mainstream media, but give voice to a new generation of talented, creative filmmakers whose work deserves notice. Their films excite, engage, inform and communicate ideas, traditions, trends and histories through stories that we all can relate to across diverse cultures, multiple generations and various technological/geographical divides. Discussions with filmmakers follow each screening.
The quality of the series, its focus and representation of emerging artists of color, has garnered acclaim and demand, from the region and nationally, as festivals and venues increasingly request the films presented by Harlem Stage for their own programs.
Harlem Stage presents film through the following programming initiatives:
