BFI Announce ‘Black Star’: A Season Of Celebration For Black Cinema | Film News
Their contribution has made our industry what it is, this retrospective season being a well timed reminder how black cinema has helped our film industry thrive. The BFI have announced that they will be releasing a new season of films showing the landmarks of black cinema, entitled Black Star, and running for almost three months in venues across the country.
Whilst Hollywood’s rotten record on diversity is under scrutiny, the BFI will feature cinema reissues of key films, in-depth surveys, and numerous live evens including seminars to concerts.
Heather Stewart, creative director of the BFI commented:
“We are celebrating great performances and bringing them back to the big screen for everyone to enjoy. And we are also asking searching questions, of our industry and of ourselves, driven by a passion to meet the expectations of audiences who rightly expect to see their stories and aspirations reflected on screen”.
