Diverse Cinema

In collaboration with our incredible exhibition partners The New Black Film CollectiveWe Are Parable and Big Picture Film Club, we're proud to use the power of the big screen to tell the stories of the Black, Asian and minority ethnic experience, both past and present.

Together, we are supporting diverse filmmakers, directors and acting talent from around the globe, offering them a platform to inspire and educate through their work.

We will be screening films that explore all aspects of life and culture, from the UK and around the globe.

We can’t wait to bring more powerful stories to the big screen, where they belong.
