Canna-Flick It (CFI) is a cannabis film series created by the founders of Born Collaborators and The People’s Dispensary San Francisco. Through film, media, and tech, CFI shares the stories and experiences of people of color in the cannabis industry, impacted by the war on drugs, and instrumental in creating policy and legislation to liberate cannabis and hemp.
 
Our first series, at the San Francisco Black Film Festival, will feature two documentaries: Standing Silent Nation by Suree Towfighnia and Life After Life by Tamara Perkins. The screenings will frame the decades of displacement and weaponizing of Cannabis in Black, Native, and POC communities, while discovering what we can do to root ourselves in the growing equity of this industry. The series will end with a talk back and mixer in partnership with Equity Sessions SF.
