About the New Negress Society
The New Negress Film Society is a collective of black women filmmakers who create community, spaces, and films that reimagine cultural productions that have traditionally exploited black women. They coordinate public programming for the filmmaking community and produce short and feature-length films that center the voices and experiences of Black women and girls. Founded in 2013, the group is currently formed by acclaimed filmmakers Faren Humes, Chanelle Aponte Pearson, Stefani Saintonge, and Yvonne Michelle Shirley. Their work has screened at the Sundance Film Festival, Brooklyn Museum, Anthology Film Archives, Hammer Museum, and MOMA.
