AfroFuturism — Black sci-fi, horror and fantasy — is a movement that the Urban Mediamakers organization has joined. A consortium of content creators who use new technology to create a multitude of interactive projects, the organization gives urban creatives an opportunity to showcase their artistry as they tell stories of their communities, compete with peers, hone their skills through educational series and interact with public supporters of media excellence. The Urban Mediamakers bring a mixed bag of media projects representing AfroFuturism.
You are invited to be a part of the 5th annual AfroFuturism Festival celebrating Black sci-fi, fantasy, horror through art, films, books, comics and gaming. Featuring virtual and in-person events.
