Organisers of the British Urban Film Festival have today announced its line up of guest speakers and panellists who will feature in BUFF’s annual industry programme at Rich Mix.

The programme kicks off on 28 November with a double header of interviews featuring film & TV director Clare Anyiam-Osigwe (Hollyoaks) and Annika Allen, head of diversity, equity and inclusion at All3Media.

On 29 November, the British Film Institute (BFI) will be represented in person with presentations from Attica Dakhil, UK Global Screen Fund Manager – International Co-production and Chris Filip, International Business Development Fund Manager for the UK Global Screen Fund. Later in the day, BUFF 2022 will host a virtual documentary session with Erika Dilday, executive producer, POV on PBS and executive director for AmDoc .

The industry programme is rounded off on 1 December with an encore screening of The Evolution of Black British Music (episode 1) followed by a live Q&A with directors Femi Oyeniran and Nicky “Slim Ting” Walker. The documentary series was commissioned by the UK arm of Black Entertainment Television (BET).

With the exception of the PBS virtual session (Eventbrite), tickets for the industry programme are available to book in person at Rich Mix, over the phone or online at
