2012

April 2012 will mark the festival's return to television for the first time in 5 years with the launch of "BUFF Presents..." a strand of films previously screened at the British Urban Film Festival including 'Drink, Drugs, & KFC' directed by actor Aml Ameen and 'Before they were Dubz', a feature-length documentary which followed the UK Hip-Hop group N-Dubz when they first started out as teenagers over a decade ago. Directed by film journalist Jessie Grace Mellor, the documentary will have its broadcast premiere on Community Channel alongside other films including 'The Holiday', directed by Ida Akesson, and 'Special Delivery' directed by Geoff Searle. "BUFF Presents..." is slated to return for a second season in October 2012. October 12, 2012 will mark the return of the British Urban Film Festival at London's Trade Union Congress headquarters to be presented by actor Wil Johnson. The 2-day event (which is free to attend) will also host a 12-hour marathon of short films, documentaries, feature-length dramas plus Q&A sessions on October 13 at Oxford House in Bethnal Green.
