British Urban film Festival 2011 (BUFF), 16, 17 and 18 September. All screenings take place at Congress House 23-28 Great Russell Street, London WC1.

The British Urban Film Festival (BUFF) was formed in July 2005 to showcase urban independent cinema in the absence of any such state-sponsored activity in the UK.

The 2011 festival is being headlined by the UK premiere of 'David is Dying' at London's Trade Union Congress headquarters and stars Lonyo Engele, a former UK garage music artist in his debut acting role.

The London-based organisation BUFF was initially created in partnership with organisations like The Screen.Biz (UK) and The Hip-Hop Association (USA) to mobilise & develop young, up and coming homegrown British urban talent in the independent film & TV sector



  1. It annoys me that it's called urban now instead of black, the film looks good, they need to bring more black films out of the UK

  2. The festival celebrates the work of many film makers- it isn't just selective to black films. The ethos to my understanding is a diverse range of film makers from the UK and Internationally, celebrating the work of black film makers and urban themes plus others. It has always had the name British urban film festival.
