Sisters in Cinema was founded as a resource for and about African American women media makers. Our mission is to entertain, educate, develop and celebrate future generations of storytellers and their audiences. 

In June 2017 Sisters in Cinema was awarded a Neighborhood Opportunity Fund matching grant from the city of Chicago for property acquisition and the rehab and build-out of Sisters in Cinema as a Media Arts Center. 

Sisters in Cinema joins the ranks of The Stony Island Arts Bank, The Black Cinema House, and the future Obama Library and Museum as part of a growing network of organizations on the South side of Chicago focused on cultural development and neighborhood transformation through projects that promote and honor African American leadership, history and creativity.
