The Blackbird Film Festival is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization based in central New York state that celebrates and supports independent filmmakers from around the world. At the Blackbird Film Festival, we strive to curate an inclusive festival atmosphere - an environment where experienced professionals and first time filmmakers can strike up conversation and perhaps take something away from one another.
In 2020, Blackbird added a virtual component to the typical in-person festival as a way to combat COVID19. However, the virtual festival was so successful that we decided to add it to our festival agenda moving forward!
