Black Screen Festival

Event Description

Description

Introduction

Black screen Film Festival stemmed from the ABE (All black everything) meetup group based in Manchester. The group was created in September 2015 with the sole purpose to promote and support black/African events around the country.

For 2016, BSFF will host its first event showcasing – through films – the rich history, values, and culture of people of pan-African origin and also to highlight the achievements of ancestral heroes and their contribution to shaping the world as we know it now.

The primary purpose of the festival is to create a platform on which Black and African positive history and rich culture is shared and talked about.

The maiden edition of the Black screen Film Festival is scheduled for Nov 2016 in Manchester with future prospects in other parts of the UK in subsequent years.

Key features of the festival include screening of films, lectures, documentaries, autobiographies as well as Q&A sessions and networking.

The stuart hall project – 96mins, 2013

Stuart Hall is one of the most influential and esteemed cultural theorists of a generation. A thinker and commentator, his peers include other giants of political commentary such as Noam Chomsky, Susan Sontag, Alan Ginsberg, Michel Foucault and Gore Vidal. THE STUART HALL PROJECT takes the viewer on a roller coaster ride through the upheavals, struggles and turning points that made the 20th century the century of campaigning, and of global political and cultural change.

Food and drinks will be provised at the event.
