Our Black history walks and tours link directly to films as people often want more information after doing a walk .2023 marks 16 years of our monthly African Odysseys film shows. It is the only such programme in the country. Read our book ‘Black History Walks in London Volume 1′ for a brief history of Black film exhibition HERE
Search for ‘African Odysseys’ on this website for our latest film. Watch trailers, read reviews and book your place at venues such as the Phoenix Cinema in East Finchley and the British Film Institute (BFI) in Southbank or sometimes online.
Our film showings are often accompanied by talks, workshops and Q&As. For those seriously into film history our 13 year archive of previously shown films is an excellent resource for fans looking for their next movie on Black history
Black History Walks has over 20 years’ experience managing film exhibitions and talks. The African Odysseys film programme at the British Film Institute is the only one of its kind in the country. No other cinema offers a monthly showing of Black films plus a Q&A session. The programme has proven hugely successful over the last 16 years and has created an impressive archive of general history, film history and recorded Q&As with directors, actors and producers.
You can see some of our recorded post film Q&As on our Youtube page here.
