The MISSION of the San Antonio Black International Film Festival (SABIFF), is to showcase quality film genres indicative of vast Black experiences, advocate for, and support filmmakers of African descent. We expose audiences to a myriad of subject matters, stories, voices, and diverse images of Black people throughout the global Diaspora that have been historically under-represented. The SABIFF is made possible by donations by viewers. Please consider donating to keep Black Subjects, stories and voices alive.
September 30 - October 3, 2021
The San Antonio Black International Film Festival in its 3rd year, shine’s our spotlight on Phenomenal Women Creatives, both in- front-of and behind-the- camera. Our theme, SISTAHRZ IN CINEMA will present female perspectives, stories, voices, panel discussions, and leads that are impactful & invigorating. We welcome all filmmakers, movie enthusiasts, industry professionals, and audiences world-wide, to join us for SABIFF 2021. Due to the COVID19 pandemic, this year’s festival will continue virtually, in celebration of presenting narratives and documentaries by-for-&-about diverse Black perspectives, genres and images from across the globe. We also plan to host a few physical/live events in SA, depending on the status of the virus reports as we move into the Fall season.

In 2018 the seeds for SABIFF were planted by native San Antionian, filmmaker/founder, Ada M. Babineaux. The state of Black film inefficiency at festivals in the ‘Alamo City’ sparked a group of community members to joined together to cultivate an annual Black Film festival and affirm that Black Films Matter all around the world. So, if you enjoy seeing fresh stories that reflect a vast Black culture, documentaries that expose you to historical events, new places, fascinating people, and interesting topics; and filmmakers, and thought leaders that challenge you to think outside of your comfort zone, then please consider supporting our festival. We need you to be a consistent part of our Audience. Your contributions are the water and the sun that will keep this platform growing with the curation of diverse films, impactful panels, workshops, and discussions that teach, inform and expand your world view. Please consider donating to SABIFF today to fertilize, pollinate and yes, grow SABIFF to a bountiful Black & Beautiful harvest in SA and beyond.
