The Windrush Caribbean Film Festival (WCFF) aims to engage and educate audiences in cinemas and art venues across the UK about the contributions of the Windrush generation and its impact on the country through screenings, talkbacks and micro-cinema challenge that will take place in cinemas, schools and community centres across the country.
WCFF will include films whose themes are centred around racism, colonialism, immigration, and cultural contributions, with the goal of airing, discussing and celebrating this iconic generation.
The festival will also host The Windrush Micro Cinema Challenge, a digital storytelling component with an open call for submissions that will result in the production of 10-15 original Microcinema films by emerging or established British filmmakers. The 2 to 3-minute shorts will be screened during the festival before a programmed feature film.
