The 2nd TNB festival presents twelve specially curated documentaries and features, for a festival of film complimented by debate and performance, creating a rich and stimulating cultural extravaganza.
Headlined by the controversial Hidden Colors, which rewrites black global history, the theme of TNB BHM 2012 is 'Shh! The Secret Lives of Everyday People' delving into the closet of black communities, in the hope of bringing out into the open issues that have remained swept under the carpet.
This programme also marks the 25th anniversary of Black History Month and to highlight this significant milestone, the festival is screening work by inspiring and emerging independent Black filmmakers from the UK, US, Jamaica and South Africa. With many cuts being made to local authority budgets for Black History Month, this represents an opportunity to secure the ongoing annual showcase of often untold stories by filmmakers from the African Diaspora.
TNB is proud to be supported by Film London through National Lottery Funding on behalf of the BFI to ensure a wide and varied provision of film in the capital, as well as Diabetes UK -- since the disease is up to five times more common in African/African Caribbean communities than in the general population. We are also partnered by NUSHO, a health organisation, which is setting up health zones for the early detection of other life-threatening illnesses before selected screenings.
Screenings in Brixton, Hackney and Stratford throughout October including the Oscar-tipped 'Beasts of the Southern Wild' and award-winning Director Penny Woolcock's feature documentary 'One Mile Away.'
