On Sunday 27th November Hostile screened at the British Urban Film Festival where the film was nominated in the Best Documentary category. 

The screening was followed with a Q&A including Hostile‘s director Sonita Gale, hosted by Augusta Woods, who wrote and acted in The Track (which was executive produced by Imelda Staunton)

Like Hostile, The Track is a social impact film which aims to support vulnerable communities (in this case, homeless people). Sonita and Augusta spoke about practical matters such as how they financed the film, as well as their hopes that the films bring about long lasting impact and policy change. 

The British Urban Film Festival was formed in July 2005 by Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe, to showcase urban independent cinema in the absence of any such state-sponsored activity in the UK, and is a great resource for black and brown filmmakers and audiences.

BUFF winners will be announced at a ceremony at Rich Mix on December 2nd, at the end of the festival.

We have so far done 12 screenings as part of our nationwide impact campaign. For upcoming screenings please visit our ticketing page here.
