The 8th Black International Film Festival

This year for the first time we are moving some of our screenings online. This is new to the Black international film festival. As funding becomes less available for the smaller and ethnic festivals in the UK, we look for more creative ways to bring our submissions to you. Therefore we have decision to bring some of our official selection directly to you. Whether you are at home, work or on the move. Why not have a night in with friends and enjoy some of the best independent films submitted to the festival.
