BHM 2020 Overtime – The Online Edition will be the first of two Autumn/ Winter online film programmes from the UFP Film Club to be widely accessible across the UK (online) and to be enjoyed at home
By providing a platfrom for emerging and newly established Black British African, African American and Caribbean filmmaking talent we hope to connect with existing and new audiences.
We are pleased to announce two of three feature films to be shown on the UFP Film Club microsite. White Riot is our feature presentation and premium offering with an online film screening scheduled on day one. Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall is our closing film and the online film screening is scheduled for day three.
White Riot, directed by Rubika Shah a documentary blends fresh interviews with queasy archive footage to recreate a hostile environment of anti-immigrant hysteria and National Front marches.
Show Me the Picture: The Story of Jim Marshall, directed by Alfred George Bailey, is a documentary that chronicles the infamous photographer’s life behind and outside the camera. A child of immigrants and a life battling inner demons, Jim fought his way to become one of the most trusted mavericks behind a lens throughout 60’s history. A passion for music led him to capture some of the most iconic figures in music history from Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, to the infamous image of Jimi Hendrix burning his guitar.
As part of our Perspectives shorts corner we will.be screening four quality shorts from across the African diaspora. We thank our collobarator, Caribbean Pop Up Cinena and Panton Hall, a UFP Film Club volunteer for sourcing these wide reaching and engaging stories. These shorts will also be available free to view for a short period once film programme has ended.
Our two online digital talks/ film discussions will consist of a round table discussion hosted by our community outreach partner and collaborator Chit Chat UK and A Conversation with Frank Starling. The subjects we intend to cover in the digital talks include issues around mental health, film narratives, film led talent and the impact of cinema closures and the future of cinema.
Feature film booking available from Tuesday 24 November 2020 at 11.00 and e-tickets to attend digital talks available now via https://www.ufpfilmclub.co.uk/bhm2020/.
