Black Cultural Archives Film Festival 2015 invites you to join us for ‘Staying Power: Black Britain On Screen‘ – a capsule collection of iconic cinema spanning the 1950s to 2015. Inspired by BCA’s current photographic exhibition ‘Staying Power‘ – ‘Black Britain On Screen’ features critically acclaimed films, rarely seen shorts and documentaries exploring the very essence of ‘Staying Power.’

As part of the film festival Black Cultural Archives host a series of live, dynamic #BCAFilmFest Salon conversations with special guest panellists from the worlds of film, art and design, literature, journalism and culture criticism. BCA Salons invite you to explore and challenge interconnected themes at the heart of Black, British and Diaspora experiences on screen.
