British Urban Film Festival – June 2018
The British Urban Film Festival is just around the corner. This festival celebrates filmmaking from all walks of life but has a special focus on emerging BAME talent. There’s a heck of a lot talent out there that goes under the radar of many conventional festivals, BUFF gives urban filmmakers a dedicated platform to showcase their work.
Highlights at the festival this year are sure to be the UK premier of ‘No Shade’, the first feature film made by the BUFF team themselves. This film will open the festival at the Curzon Soho cinema on June 4th.
There’s a lot of great work to choose from but here are few other screenings that caught our eye:
Weds June 6th – UK hip hop documentary double bill and Q&A session:
Thurs 7th – short film collection from emerging black filmmaking talent.
9th June – Closing night premier, new British action thriller feature film.
More than just screenings however, look out for the BUFF Awards too! Helping to recognise the rising stars of urban filmmaking across all the categories.
Where and When
The festival place takes place between the 4th – 9th June playing at venues in central and north London.
