Black London’s Film Heritage has embarked on a search for material about Black London life from pre/post war years to the mid-1990’s for a programme that will be launched in March 2011. The project is inviting submissions from any London Borough archive, film and community organisations or individuals holding film material which depicts an African-Caribbean presence in London.
To be considered for inclusion in this project, submissions for previewing will be accepted on all formats, but preferably digital or VHS tape. Films featuring all styles, subjects and occasions that are considered to be significant to share – family, community, groups and associations – are welcome; and the curators, who have been commissioned by Film London, are particularly interested in films that feature the earliest pre and post war years right up until the mid 1990s. The deadline for submissions is 22 December 2010.
A compilation programme of archive film material will be produced and will be available for bookings in cinemas, alternative venues, community groups, film societies, and membership organisations across the capital. Supporting materials and information concerning further access to available archival resources will compliment the programme. The project has been initiated and funded by Film London, the capital’s film and media agency, to bring more Black screen heritage film to London’s screens.
This request is for immediate effect in order to meet the film programme launch in March 2011. Anyone who would like their material to be considered for inclusion should contact the Curators – June Givanni and Imruh Bakari at firstname.lastname@example.org, or leave a message on 07943 450 334 as soon as possible, but no later than 22ND December 2010.
For further information please contact: June Givanni or Imruh Bakari both on email: email@example.com.
