September 2020 Edition
Black Film Bulletin was first published by the British Film Institute in 1993. Founded by editors Dr June Givanni and Gaylene Gould, it was a vital space for critical commentary around developments in new Black cinema and pan-African cinema histories. Publication ceased around the turn of the millennium, but in recent years the BFB has taken gradual steps to being revived in a new form, this time guided by two members of a new generation – THINK Cinematic and Melanie Hoyes. All four BFB editors talk James Bell through the Black Film Bulletin’s history.

Lessons of cultural reinvention.”
'Who We Are' provides us with an opportunity: ‘to look at the past, and the canon of work from Black British filmmakers; to look at the current state of affairs, and finally to be fully focused and committed to the future generation.’
