Images of Black Women - Film Festival

Images of Black Women (IBW) Film Festival promotes race and gender equality in film & society as a whole by shining the spot light on black women who suffer both race & gender inequality in front and behind the camera.

Over the years IBW showcased the global black experience with a focus on women in varied roles such as actresses, directors, screenwriters and producers. Supported upcoming filmmakers such as Rungano Nyoni (Mwansa The Great) & premiered work from renowned directors such as the first black woman to win Best Director at Sundance 2012 Ava DuVernay and welcomed international film icon Euzhan Palcy.

To mark its 9th anniversary, the festival has expanded across London to deliver a 9-day festival instead of its usual 3 days. In addition IBW has also become a platform for artists with its art exhibition “Feminine Expressions & Representationss?
