ABOUT  

Based in Los Angeles, BlackCinemadb.com is an online movie database of films from the African-American and African disapora. With our database, users can view hundreds of big-budget and independent films, TV movies, documentaries, classics, and notable foreign films from 1930 and beyond.

Our mission, quite simply, is to help promote the work of black directors, writers, actors, producers and technical crew while providing the most current and thought-provoking commentary regarding black-themed films. As aspiring filmmakers, we felt a social responsibility to form a more unified, collective black voice in the film industry while serving as a resource for black filmmakers around the globe.
