They are defined by the love they give. mamafilm is committed to representing the realities and complexities of a diverse range of nurturers, across race, class, geography, sexual preference, ability and generation. mamafilm is also committed to promoting media literacy & cinema culture to our youth.
the collaborators: Partnering with like-minded creators, organizations, non-profits, brands and businesses affords our audience a more robust accessibility to fellow community members and available resources.
