The British Urban Film Festival has arrived in God’s own country – Yorkshire!
From October 16th to the 20th, Halifax will be buzzing with 48 fantastic independent film screenings and Q&A sessions at the Vue Halifax. This festival is well known for showcasing incredible urban independent films, telling stories as diverse as the people they represent.
Usually held in London, this year the festival has come to Yorkshire, with events being held in both Halifax and Leeds.
Prepare yourself for a thrilling line up of short films exploring everything from working class life and motherhood to the refugee and migrant experience, plus much more. You’ll see talented stars like Josette Simon OBE (known for ‘Small Axe’ and ‘Anatomy of a Scandal’) in the gripping psychological thriller ‘Rea’s Men’, a captivating Jamaican folk tale. And don’t miss Araloyin Oshunremi (Stefan from Netflix’s ‘Top Boy’) also stars in the film ‘Falsehood’, portraying Richard, a young boy navigating his identity in two worlds.
