The African Odysseys film programme has screened rare African/Caribbean films at the British Film Institute on London's South Bank for the last 8 years. The films are sourced and selected by the African Caribbean Consultative group which is comprised of grassroots organisations like Black History Walks, with a history of pro-active Black film screenings. The BFI is the only cinema in the country to offer monthly screenings of African/Caribbbean films. The films are often complemented with talks, workshops and Q and A's. Join the Black History Walks mail list HERE for regular updates.
