BFI’s Black Star season
As accompaniment to the BFI’s Black Star season (Oct-Dec), this course is essential for anyone interested in film history and of special interest to anyone wishing to develop programming knowledge of Black cinema and television. Black Star course speakers are professionals with different specialist experience and the sessions will illuminate a range of critical perspectives and approaches to the season, which includes coverage of early race films, African Cinema movements such as Nollywood and contemporary film and TV. A healthy Film culture desperately needs passionate but also informed programmers (esp. in the area of Black cinema and television) and this is a unique chance for people to develop knowledge and expertise and share their work with others.
The course will be convened by curators, historians and industry professionals including actor/producer/director Tim Reid, writer Ashley Clark, Althea Legal Miller, curator/programmer Nadia Denton, writer Kunle Olulode, historian Marcus Powell.
