Jazmin Jones is a Brooklyn Based, Bay Area raised Visual Storyteller and Thot Leader with BUFU: By Us For Us. Her aim is to build platforms for more vibrant and nuanced representation of the marginalized communities she’s a part of. Working across visual mediums, her projects often echo personal experiences as a Queer, Black femme attempting to wage intimacy in the Post-Internet era.
She's been granted the Human and Civil Rights Award from the National Association of Education, the Fair Use Award from the Media That Matters Film Festival, a Civic Arts and Humanities Fellowship with the Flaherty Film Seminar and was recently featured in SFMoMa's Raw Materials podcast. In 2015, Jazmin co-founded BUFU: a project-based collective interested in solidarity amongst Us, co-creating experimental models of organizing with You. The collective was awarded Eyebeam’s 2017 Trust Residency and are 2020 residents with the Brooklyn Community Foundation Incubator Project.
In addition to editing an immersive documentary on (pan)Black and (pan)Asian cultural and political relationships with BUFU, Jazmin is currently developing an experimental documentary titled Seeking Mavis Beacon.
