The Black Filmmakers Hall of Fame, Inc. (BFHFI), was founded in 1974, in Oakland, California. It supports and promotes black filmmaking, and preserves the contributions by African-American artists both before and behind the camera. It also sponsors advance screenings of films by and about people of African descent and hosts the Oscar Micheaux Award, held each February in Oakland.
