panels, script readings, networking, youth films, Urban PitchFest,
AfroFuturism Fest, awards ceremony and more at UMFF 2022.
The 3rd Black Streamers Award 2022 celebrating
Black content creators with the most-watched videos and fans.
From news, gossip, DIY and self-help to sports and training,
Black streamers are changing the industry on many platforms.
As independent content creators, we must look beyond
creating and focus on entrepreneurship to monetize our
projects. Awards are wonderful, but entrepreneurship pays
bills, funds your next project and allows you to empower.
