Tired of searching and searching for more queer women of color representation on Neflix? Well, stop looking there. There’s a new indie effort called Sistah Sinema underway that will offer a wide selection of films by and about queer women of color.
Sistah Sinema decided to team up with IndieFlix after exploring other platforms. IndieFlix — like Sistah Sinema — focused on indie filmmakers and creating a conversation about cinema. According to Scilla Andreen — IndieFlix’s CEO and one of the few women CEOs in tech — niche marketing and community-brand marketing is key to IndieFlix’s future growth. Partnering with Sistah Sinema is part of a larger effort to showcase cinema that highlights global diversity.
The films include selections like Cheryl Dunye’s important 1997 film “The Watermelon Woman” and Kourtney Ryan Ziegler’s look at black transmen, “Still Black.” Take a look at the films and learn more here. Memberships are only $5 a month.
