Dismantling anti-Black racism in Canada’s screen industries
Black Canadians are thriving throughout the screen industries, and their stories engage and inspire audiences globally.
The Black Screen Office’s goals are to make Canada’s screen industries practices and policies equitable and free of anti-Black racism; to work collaboratively with decision-makers to develop tools and strategies that enable system-level engagement and accountability; and to empower Black Canadians working within the screen industries to thrive and share their stories.
We have a healthy disregard for the impossible, refuse to accept the status quo, and believe there are no limits to what Black Canadians can accomplish in the screen industries.
We are an organization that believes in the power of Black leadership and talent. We recognize that there are multiple Black communities and identities in Canada and we are a home for all.
We recognize and nurture the power that is already present in Black Canadians, creating opportunities for us to shape our own destiny within the screen industries.
We share all aspects of our work: what we do, how we do it, and our learnings along the way.
Meet our multi-faceted, multi-talented team at the Black Screen Office.
