Speakers Application

Charlotte Black Film Festival > Speakers Application

We pride ourselves on putting the leading voices from business, technology, entertainment, and digital media on our PowerUp stage in the Digital Village. We’re always looking to collaborate with leading influencers to create engaging content for our attendees. If you would like to be a speaker or entertainer, please fill in the following form. If we think there could be a good fit, a member of our team will be in touch with you.


We require that potential speakers and entertainers take the time to submit a comprehensive package to us for consideration.

  • An online clip of a presentation/performance you have done in the last two years. The clip can be on Vimeo, YouTube, or on your website, but it should not require our team to download a copy – streaming only. You can submit up to three links, but we may only review the first link. We cannot assess an application without a working video.
  • A professional photo that you would use for promotional purposes. If you don’t have one, just send us a nice clear photo that reflects your personality. 
  • Entertainment or Program Titles, topics, intended audiences, and description paragraph of keynotes. Strong applications include learning outcomes for each program.
  • A link to your book or articles you have written, or any articles/TV appearances relevant to your proposed speaking topic.

We encourage submissions from potential speakers of all levels of experience. Please fill out as much information as possible. Don’t worry if you don’t have something we ask about.
