S.O.U.L. Fest 2023
September 1 – September 3
Now in its fifth year, the annual S.O.U.L. Fest returns to BFI Southbank, in partnership with ABFF Global: London, a European spin-off of the American Black Film Festival to celebrate Black film and TV talent both behind and in front of the camera.
Taking place from 1-3 September in London, the festival (created by The British Blacklist, We Are Parable and S.O.U.L. Film) will screen highly anticipated titles at BFI Southbank and Picturehouse Central.
Expect the usual combination of exclusive preview feature films, a programme of masterclasses, panel discussions and practical sessions to support emerging talent in their journey through the film industry and of course parties and events. With partners Sony Pictures, BBC Comedy, University of East London and Amazon Studios.
This year’s festival features a roster of talent presenting films and TV from genres spanning from documentary to horror to drama. From Friday to Sunday, take part in screenings and exclusive Q&As.
On Saturday, the S.O.U.L. Shorts and Awards will screen a selection of the very best short films from Black British filmmakers and announce the 2023 S.O.U.L. Fest Awards. In addition to acknowledging the incredible talent on show, this event will recognise an outstanding contribution to Black British screen culture with the Impact Award.
Tickets are available now via the S.O.U.L. Fest website: www.soulfilmfest.co.uk
