On Sunday 27th November, Hostile screens at the British Urban Film Festival, which was started in July 2005 by Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe.

The film is part of the festival’s “No Place Like Home” strand, and will be preceded by some amazing new short films. These include Asunder, an intricate story about family, politics and justice by Janet Market and The Track by Louisa Connolly Burnham, which is about a volunteer working at a day shelter for rough sleepers.

The British Urban Film Festival was created to showcase urban independent cinema in the absence of any such state-sponsored activity in the UK, and celebrates filmmakers from diverse backgrounds representative of what they call the ‘9 Diversity Strands’. These are: race, age, disability, gender diversity, marriage & civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, ethnicity, religion or belief, and sexual orientation. 

The screening will be followed by a Q&A featuring director Sonita Gale. Click here for tickets.
