National Black Movie Association is an amazing non profit organization that has helped aid my collegiate education at Howard University. I am grateful for the HBCU Reel opportunity because it brought exposure to my first short film, provided network connections, and spread awareness on representation in the TV/Film industry. This organization strives to increase media representation and amplifies the voices of black youth. I'm looking forward to see how NBMA will continue to revolutionize the industry!!!

The National Black Movie Association is an exceptional organization, led by an EXTRAORDINARY founder! Agnes Moss designed this No-Proft with a " People First " focus. They thrive to become internationally known, not because they want recognition but because they want to be a voice of change and equality for the film industry. I HIGHLY recommend that EVERY not only supports this organization but rallies behind it!

The African American community has been in desperate need of organizations that support Black filmmakers, showcase and promote Black movies.
The Black Movie Association is the best and fills that void. Despite the current climate in the world this association has consistently provided timely platforms, screened and promoted outstanding films. Your dedication and perseverance have helped to put a spotlight on Black Movies, filmmakers, and movie lovers.
Thank you for all of your hard work and commitment. Your contributions to showcase the most anticipated Black Movies have been invaluable to our community.

I attended a NBMA movie event and the atmosphere was incredible. This non-profit displays a spectrum of professionalism and authencity when it comes to event planning. This movie event brought out the best of the best during the pandemic. I would highly recommend anyone who hasn't associated with this non-profit to collaborate and become a part of their mission.

The National Black Movie Association demonstrated the how's and why we
should care and share Black films and donate to help students achieve their dreams. I get a sense of knowing by donating that I have helped and because of helping something will
be changed for the better.

This association is working hard to make this become a reality. The presentation of information was very helpful and encouraged me to participate in donating funds
for years to come to this organization. I encouraged my friends and made it a point to share with my neighbors, church members and even my doctor. I shared the information I received and the wonderful time I had while I enjoyed the movie.

I look forward to participating in the endeavors of the National Black Movie Associations objectives and goals.⭐ The National Black Movie Association is an excellent association to honor and support, as they strive diligently to reach students with dreams of becoming filmmakers. YES, I will always support, The National Black Movie Association.

I have known Ms. Agnes Moss for at least 20 years. During this time, I have admired her fine intellect, charisma and interpersonal skills in promoting worthy causes. Today, Ms. Moss and her National Black Movie Association (NBMA) staff are highly motivated to promote an extremely important worthy cause for black people, the production of black movies. These movies will instill pride and represent black people in a positive light.
The film industry has been slow to fully embrace diversity, especially in promoting black movies. Colleges and black neighborhoods are overflowing with talented up and coming black actors. Given the opportunity, I am sure NBMA’s black movies will create positive images for black youth. I commend Ms. Moss and NBMA staff for shining a light on this worthy and long overdue cause.

The National Black Movie Association (NBMA) hosted a screening of the film “Photograph.” It was truly my pleasure and honor to be invited to attend. The event was well organized and discussions before and after the film reminded me of the importance that blacks and all people of color are equally represented in all forms of entertainment but especially films. NBMA is making a positive difference in all lives by showcasing the talents and abilities of a historically, severely underrepresented group in the film industry. In this current era of “Black Lives Matter,” it’s paramount that blacks “as a people” are humanized—that the negative stigmas placed on blacks be defused. What better way to do this than through film? Not only will the generation of more black films facilitate a better understanding of black culture, it will also bring more economic stability to the black community. Blacks will finally have greater access to roles currently dominated by whites such as Producers, Directors, Screen Writers, etc. I can’t think of a more relevant and honorable effort. The NBMA is an essential catalyst to exposing black culture through film, to the world and facilitating economic stability to a race that has experienced excruciating oppression for hundreds of years. BRAVO, NBMA!!

I have witnessed how the National Black Movie Association advocates for the elevation of Black Film and Black Filmmakers. There is a HUGE disparity in African American representation on the big screen. NBMA supports initiatives to educate future Black Filmmakers by supporting Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCU's). They also provide opportunities to African American creators who need help with gaining necessary contacts and exposure for their work. They don't just talk the talk, I've witnessed them deliver as they award annual scholarships for Black filmmakers as well.

The work the NBMA does is desperately needed and they are an organization worthy of support.

The National Black Movie Association is advancing the interests of Black filmmakers, Black moviegoers and Black movie supporters, but it's also a fun place to work. Black movies have a huge impact on the Black community. I'm excited to work towards the organization's goal of providing resources for the next generation of storytellers. The work is both fun and meaningful!

The NBMA is a great organization helping the Black Movie Community be recognized nationally and internationally, and also providing a platform for new and inspiring entities to develop their craft and become trailblazers. The National Black Movie Association has opened a door that will allow many to excel including the youth and the established. I look forward to continuing to support the NBMA and assist them as they establish the NBMA foundation.

The National Black Movie Associate provides people the opportunity to enjoy black films with their families and communities on topics in which Black people enjoy. It was a pleasure to attend the National Black Movie Day Event in Washington, DC. The decorations, food, hospitality, and atmosphere was extremely inviting and I enjoyed the movie selection for the event. The most interesting part of this event was the panel discussion and the awards the association presented to college students, directors, and black movie producers. This association really supports the Black Movie Industry and the people involved with production.
