The world’s definitive database of black British entertainment, The British Blacklist, has become an official media partner for The British Urban Film Festival (BUFF) 2013.
The British Blacklist will be working alongside BUFF to not only promote their flagship annual festival in September but their new event launching on Thursday 4th April 2013. The ‘Spring Season’ will premiere the latest new releases from the world of independent film and television as well as showcase classic films from the BUFF film catalogue at London’s Genesis cinema.
As The British Blacklist continues to evolve founder, Akua Gyamfi, feels that a partnership with BUFF is important for building a synergy amongst the black British entertainment industry ‘I’m extremely happy that we’re working with BUFF. This groundbreaking film festival which has grown on the premise of championing unrecognized talent is absolutely what The British Blacklist is all about.’
Akua’s thoughts are echoed by BUFF founder, Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe, “ Ever since its’ inception in July 2005, the British Urban Film Festival has always warranted attention because of its’ remit to showcase urban independent cinema in the UK and what it is to be both British and urban in an ever-changing society. On behalf of the board, I’m delighted to be working with the British Blacklist who share our values of independence and creativity in engaging audiences in this new media age.”
