Welcome to Black Screen 2007
‘ The Small Festival With The Big Impact’
Our original mandate and aims remain the same to bring a cultural diverse festival program to a wider audience. This year we are pleased once again, to roll out a program of features, shorts, workshops, discussion, networking and debate.Our theme is in celebration of the Remembrance of the 200th Anniversary of the Abolition of Slavery with a program of Films from Brazil, Africa, US, and the UK. To mark this celebration a reception evening will be held, followed by the screening of ‘Roots’. The TV film, that was first screened thirty years ago, (yes it has been that long). The first episode was launched onto our television screen and had us captured for the next twelve episodes, and changed many perceptions ( Not to be missed) If you’re a film maker or film goers, Black Screen is the one for you. Screenings with a diverse input, both behind and in front of the screen. Films that are not always seen on the main reel. Come along and support the wide range of various films from Nollywood, Bollywood, Black Hollywood and independent filmmakers. On board this year is the Afro Caribbean Society from the University of Liverpool who will lead on the workshops and film discussions. Our program collaborated on the screening for the National School film Week taken place during Black History Month.
We would like to thank our sponsors for their continued support and also to the team & volunteers who had a huge input on producing this years program for 2007.
