Hey there. Let’s get a couple of house keeping items out of the way before I introduce my amazing new blog. My name is Josie and I am a queer Black woman. I love photography, DIY projects, my cat Jonah, oh and films! I wanted to start a new creative endeavor and was never able to comment on my friends tumblr’s because I’m not a member, so I decided to join up.
Colourcore is my little piece of the internet to talk shop about films made by and with the talent of women, people of color and LGBTQQI folks.
I’m embarrassed to admit, I can name 10 white male directors with film releases this year without much concentration, but struggle to remember a few female directors with 2011 releases. That’s problematic for me. I want to support work that I see myself in, not just in the physical, but in the story as well. So, here I embark on a re-education of my love for film with not a splash, but a bucket full of color. Welcome!
