Thursday 4 May 2023


Third Cinema in the Era of Channel 4

With Imruh Bakari (chair), Gaston Kaboré, Hudda Khaireh, Rod Stoneman and Parminder Vir

The first ten years of Channel 4 (1982–92) fundamentally transformed British film and television, and also witnessed the emergence of a Black British independent cinema. This intergenerational panel brings together key individuals who were part of that moment, with creative professionals who have encountered and reframed the complex legacies of Black British independent media production.
