Read more about the awards here.
A season of films showing from October 2020 - March 2021. This film festival is all about highlighting and putting a spotlight on films, actors and directors that showed outstanding talent on film.
There are several genres throughout the festival from drama, fantasy, horror to documentary and archive film.
This festival will give many a chance to see films led, featured or directed by black artists on the big screen again or for the very first time.
We are also working on having some guest speakers attend screenings, or by pre recording before the screenings. There will be two films per month, with an evening and matinee screening giving everyone a chance to see the film.
