The Journey Starts Here!
75 years and counting, 75 years of memories, 75 years of hopes and dreams – and it’s all coming to a screen near you!
Get ready for WCFF 2023 as we continue celebrating the Windrush Generation. We’re touring the UK in-person with screenings in Bristol, Birmingham, South Hampton, Newport, Westminster, and East London. Plus connecting back to Canada with an online program from the festival available to Canadian audiences starting June 21st.
In 2023, Windrush Caribbean Film festival will explore the complex relationship between the big screen and the Windrush migrants from the Commonwealth through screening films from across the span of the 75 years of Black British CInema. This captivating filmic experience along with interactive workshops and thought-provoking events, will once again highlight the artistic, political and social contribution of the original pioneers as well as their descendants who are shaping Britain today, forming their own cultural and political narratives and identities to shine bright in their own starry night.
