2018

I had started List of black films of 2018 but have copied its content to this list and redirected that link to here. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 16:44, 20 April 2018 (UTC)

Black films? Or black American films?

What exactly is the criteria for a 'black film' here? In this instance, it seems to exclusively refer to films made by/for/about black Americans.

Virtually every single film made in Africa is made by/for black people - but you won't find one here. Totally overlooked in this list. As are 'black films' from Europe. Perfect example of US-centrism on Wikipedia.

I recommend changing the article title to 'List of African American films'. Even the idea of a 'black film' seems too broad, to me - some of these films are made and directed by non-black people and star an eclectic mix of ethnicities.80.192.27.175 (talk) 21:56, 19 May 2018 (UTC)

Most sources list black films from the US. A few listed black films from the UK. Based on sources, it does not seem like African films really fall under this classification. I'm not sure what a better title would be, but perhaps the lead section can mention something related to the African diaspora, if there are sources to back that connection.

Blatant Racism

Why does this page exist? Why can't a film just be a film, instead of being a "black film"? Shocking. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 197.88.164.72 (talk) 03:18, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

It's not racism. There are black film festivals. Such films are recognized because predominant society often lacks such films. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 11:13, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
Whatever society is predominant is not the issue here. Your primary criterion is skin pigmentation and are citing clickbait articles as sources. It is completely racist to state that a movie like, for example, Get Out is a "black film". This is just further proof of the growing corruption of the wiki system. I'm not even going to edit your article, I'm going to leave it exactly as it is and show it to people as an example of how progress is being stifled at an academic level by bigots with one foot firmly planted in the past. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 197.88.164.72 (talk) 13:13, 11 July 2018 (UTC)
No, it's not "completely racist" to state that Get Out is a black film. This classification is supported by many sources. See black film's "Bibliography" section for numerous sources about black film. Wikipedia follows sources, which do discuss race in film. Erik (talk | contrib) (ping me) 13:35, 11 July 2018 (UTC)

The Miseducation of Cameron Post

Why is The Miseducation of Cameron Post listed here? Yes, it has one Black principal actor, but the protagonist of the movie is white, and the director isn't Black either, so it seems like it doesn't qualify. 131.194.189.37 (talk) 02:56, 13 July 2018 (UTC)
