The Chicago-based non-profit Sisters in Cinema has launched a crowdfunding campaign for the rehab and building of the Sisters in Cinema Media Arts Center.
Founded by award-winning filmmaker Yvonne Welbon, the center will be located on Chicago's South Shore, the neighborhood where she was raised.
Sisters in Cinema launched in 1997 as an online resource for and about African-American women filmmakers. Currently, it is a non-profit with a mission to entertain, educate, develop and celebrate African-American women filmmakers and their audiences.
The Center will be open to the community and offer workshops, courses, screenings, scholar resources and opportunities to network with industry professionals. Sisters in Cinema wants as much of this as possible to be free.
