Throughout Black history month this October (until 25 Oct), The New Black Film Club(TNBFC) is screening a selection of productions at the The  Picture House in Hackney, Stratfford and Ritzy Picture House in Brixton.

Along with the award winning documentaries, features and independent films there will be Q&A sessions and debates about a genre of films and documentaries by emerging Black filmmakers from the UK, US, South Africa and Jamaica, that are not usually widely distributed

Shh! The Secret Lives of Everyday People, is the theme of this years festival which also celebrates the 50th Independence of both Jamaica and Trinidad & Tobago. It hopes to shine a light on inferences and stories, overlooked or missing from history books as well as taboos and often unexplored subjects within black communities.

Films being screened include award winning film maker, CampbellX’s debut feature film Stud Life, often described as a “post-modern LGBT She’s Gotta Have It for the YouTube generation” and the Oscar tipped Beasts of the Southern Wilds.

About Remi

Remi Hackney Hive founder, publisher and contributor. Hackneyite and all round Girl Friday who couldn't wait to leave Hackney and London behind her. After hitching her wagon in California, Texas, New Orleans, Louisiana for 18 years, with a brief spell in Mexico, the prodigal daughter returned to London, happy to put an unconventional and risqué past behind her. It sometimes feels like she’s still at war with herself. This often leads her into a whole lot of trouble, although it’s fair to blame it on some of her best qualities: intelligence, original thinking, willingness to take risks, skepticism, rebelliousness, independence, and creativity. But you know what, much of the trouble she gets into is because she can’t help pointing out that the emperor is naked. Remi still lives by her own rules, nobody else’s. She is owned by her two dogs Deffer(a Jack Russell ) Darcy (a Jack Russell/Pomeranian mix now deceased but can’t remove their names) and two Black cats she adopted December 2021, Desmond and Tutu. She is proprietor of London’s finest and long established pet sitting service. The big smoke is home for the moment, but she desperately yearns wide open spaces, where she hopes to call home in the near future.
