Official website

The Black Reel Awards began in 2000 and were designed to annually recognize and celebrate the achievements of black people in feature, independent and television films. Awards range from the art of character portrayals to the artistry displayed behind the camera.

The Black Reel Awards were founded by Tim Gordon and Sabrina McNeal in 2000.[1] The FAAAF/Black Reel Awards benefit The Foundation for the Advancement of African Americans in Film (FAAAF), a non-profit arts organization whose mission is to provide educational opportunities to future minority film executives. Through the FAAAF programs "Reel Kids," and "Producer's Institute," scholarships are awarded to minority junior high, high school and college graduate students pursuing careers in the movie and television industries. In 2015, the foundation changed its name to The Foundation for the Augmentation of African-Americans in Film.[2]
