Membership & Donations

The Black Documentary Collective (BDC) was founded by the late, great documentarian St. Clair Bourne to support the artistic development and professional advancement of documentary media makers of African descent.  For these film and media makers, it is the singular networking organization for documentary film, video, and media professionals of African descent. The BDC supports its members through hosting screenings, access to professional development workshops, discounted professional services, educational programs, and networking events.  The BDC is also dedicated to making a difference in the ever-increasing communities that are interested in, and influenced by the work of its talented members, through community partnerships, outreach and engagement.  We’ve helped countless members raise money, promote and screen their films, find work and mentors.  We also have a catalog/directory of our members that will be posted soon on our new website, currently under construction.  The catalog & directory allows for anyone interested in our members work to contact them for screenings, jobs, mentorship, distribution, etc.

You can join as a professional, student, or if you just want to support our work, donate as a BDC Friend at any amount you wish.
