Germany Wants Black Film: Apply to the 30th Annual Black International Cinema Berlin

The 30th Annual Black International Cinema Berlin has extended their submission deadline for films to January 15, 2014. Entries invited from Africa, the African Diaspora and all Filmmakers addressing issues on Intercultural and multi heritage societies. Also entries of Children’s and Art Films (i.e.: Dance, Theatre, Fine Arts, etc.). The Black International Cinema Berlin is a yearly interdisciplinary, intercultural film/video festival produced and directed by Fountainhead/ Tanz Théâtre in Berlin, Germany.

Black International Cinema Berlin originated from the Black Cultural Festival, which produced and directed the Fountainhead/Tanz Théâtre in 1986 for the first time in Europe, a 3-week event in Berlin, which presented the contributions of Black people to world culture through film, theater, dance, music, workshops and seminars, and was an homage to the legendary tap dancer, Carnell Lyons.

Since then, Fountainhead/Tanz Théâtre produces and directs the Black International Cinema Berlin each year in Berlin and additionally, in other European and US-American cities.

The festival focuses on presenting works of an artistic, cultural or political nature coinciding with the general educational, social, artistic and economic interest of people from Africa, the African Diaspora and people with an interest in participating in intercultural communication and the resultant interfacing and sharing of educational, social, artistic and economic resources. The latest film from this festival that did well on the film festival circuit was Audre Lorde-The Berlin Years ( the trailer is below).  To submit your project, visit this link.
