The BlackStar Film Festival is an annual celebration of African-influenced cinema. The works often explore traditions of the African diaspora and global indigenous communities, and they come from black artists from around the world. This year’s edition will feature over 60 films, which have been chosen to reflect the year’s theme of “Resistance.” This theme is aimed to examine political and social uprisings around the world through a cinematic lens.

Book here to stay with the Independent Hotel this summer. For more information on the BlackStar Film Festival, check out the event website here.
