Creating collaborations for Africa’s
Black female creatives.
The goal and objective of Black Seed is to foster collaboration between black female creatives. We will also provide a rental space for collaboration between filmmakers and affordable film equipment to various productions. The intent is also to contribute to growing and building audience appreciation of local content in marginalised areas.
To develop our in house production component we would employ a part time crew and talent for multiple productions per annum and develop multiple scripts, concepts and projects per annum. In growing our capital resources we would offer proposal writing, script-editing and concept development services. We will have a presence at all the major local and international film festivals and markets in order to promote and market both our business and products.

Black Seed’s mission is to develop, produce, sell and distribute quality African content in film and television all over the world.

With a focus on black female filmmakers collaborating to produce quality content and packaging, our aim is to create a film hub space catering to Africa and the international market. Black Seed Film Hub is a Johannesburg based company and was founded in 2018.
