Legacy Film Festival is a celebration of the achievements, contributions and issues of Black minority and ethnic people around the world. Its focus is largely, but not solely on that of the African diasporas as part of the internationally established Black History Month during October.
The Birth of Legacy Film Festival
Legacy Film Festival was born back in January 2010 by people with a passion to bring a wider range of films to a wider audience. It was decided that this year Black History Month would take the theme ‘Legacy’ with a view to creating relationships, structures and events that could be built upon year after year, as well as things that could take place all year round. Legacy Film Festival is going from strength to strength and 2012 will be our 3rd year, bringing a wider variety of films to the big screen.
