Established in 2005, the British Urban Film Festival was initially formed to showcase urban independent cinema in the absence of any such state-sponsored activity in the UK. Supported by a board which includes actors, journalists, film critics and filmmakers, BUFF stands out as the only festival of its kind with a triple offering of online, on-air and spectator platforms where filmmakers and scriptwriters are presented with the opportunity to have their work showcased to the largest audience reach possible.
As a publisher-broadcaster our objective is to premiere a minimum of 25 films annually in the UK, celebrating difference and to champion, embrace, disrupt and accurately reflect the changing cultural mass and demographic make-up of the UK.
Marlon Palmer created “Kush Film Club” in may 1998.
He felt that a promotional platform was very much needed in the UK to create widespread awareness of independent Black filmmakers & their films. The film club became very popular within the ethnic-minority communities of London, Bristol & other UK regions through its mixture of attending celebrities from the world of film & TV, guest hosts & performances, short films, premier & exclusive feature films, DVD giveaways, Q & A’s and after-parties.
Our mission is to bring the creative talents of the unrepresented community to the big screen.Established in 2013, S.O.U.L was formed to create a platform that celebrates and connects ethnic filmmakers, supported by industry heavyweights, actors, filmmakers and production houses with the mission to make the British Film and TV industry more diverse. At our events we connect like-minded individuals, ranging from established him makes to those just starting out so get on board.
