Other films to be shown include a film produced by the African Caribbe...

BUFF BLOG (MAY 2012)

The much maligned profile of Black British actresses has been well documented on this blog over the past 18 months and most recently in the London Evening Standard with the forthcoming feel-good flick ‘Fast Girls’ and the supposed significance of Leonora Crichlow playing the lead role in a British film. On such matters is primarily where Twitter comes into its own as a live news editor run by the public. It doesn’t take long before feedback is immediate and corrected (many thanks to @ECF...

Traditionally in the UK, the most-watched programmes on television are always scheduled on a Saturday night. The last few years have seen a more aggressive approach to win hearts and minds with the UK’s 2 biggest broadcasters (BBC & ITV) going head-to-head and scheduling their ‘MUST-SEE’ programmes against each other. In the last 6 months alone, Strictly Come Dancing was beating The X Factor when previously the ITV juggernaut was winning hand over fist. On ...

N-Dubz Documentary headlines British Urban Film Festival TV coverage in April

The UK Hip-Hop group N-Dubz will headline the British Urban Film Festival’s broadcast coverage on Community Channel in April. The four-time MOBO winners, who got together as teenagers, are the subject of a documentary, which followed the band when they first started out in their career over a decade ago.  ‘Before they were Dubz’, directed by film journalist Jessie Grace Mellor, is the centrepiece of the “BUFF Presents…”strand premiering on Community Channel on Saturd...

In a little over 4 months from now, this year’s British Urban Film Festival line-up will be decided. Another year consuming, digesting and deliberating on hours of output, private screenings and submissions will come to a head and the UK’s buffest films (otherwise known as the sweet 16) will be offered to the public for due consideration at BUFF 2012, the 7th such occasion, with each festival seemingly surpassing itself in profile and prestige year on year. And so it goes without saying th...

BUFF BLOG (January 2012)

The first month of Olympic year in London has not failed to disappoint in terms of celebrating the best of British. At the time of publication of this blog came news that the network television premiere of ‘Sus’ – co-produced by and starring Clint Dyer attracted 600,000 viewers on BBC 1, dominating all TV viewing at the time of broadcast (which at 11.15pm is quite impressive). Previous BUFF blogs and the festival in general have championed the likes of films like ‘Sus’ and will conti...

Who would be a media mogul ey? The last few weeks and months has seen the likes of Simon Cowell and Rupert Murdoch become the story for the wrong reasons. For months, the press were told who was in and who was out in the game of musical chairs regarding this year’s X Factor judges. Eventually we said goodbye to Danni Minogue and Cheryl Cole and hello to Kelly Rowland and Tulisa Contostavlos (Peter Dickson, the voice of X-Factor will certainly have his hands full announcing her name in full e...

From a spunky heroine to ‘the’ flashback, from ‘Babymother’ to ‘Sus’, Anjela Lauren Smith has graced British cinema for the best part of 2 decades and continues to adorn the big screen and the small screen. Behind the scenes, her versatility and passion for the industry shows no sign of abating either. The latest string to her bow was her recent appointment to the board of members at Buff Enterprises. We’re delighted that Anjela has accepted this position at a time where British ...

For many people, British urban cinema came into its’ own with the premiere of ‘Adulthood’ on June the 20th 2009. 2 years on, the genre has now spawned its’ first spoof with the cheekily titled Anuvahood. It was at the Adulthood premiere when BUFF first caught up with messyrs Aml Ameen & Kamara Bacchus. It wasn’t your standard red carpet interview. Such is the beauty of the English language that a word can mean so many things to so many people – let’s just say the word BUFF wa...

The 2010 February Buff blogcast

user
The shortest month of the year is far from short on the movies front as news emerges with regards to the recent BAFTA nominations. Ahead of the big buff bash on Sunday February 21, the marmite film Avatar – so called because you either love it or you hate it – has been nominated for 8 awards including best film and best director. And having picked up the big one at the recent Golden Globes, Avatar looks set to sweep up much in the same way that Slumdog Millionaire did 12 months ago. Precious...
