Congrats to our friends over at BUFF Enterprises, who announced earlier this week that both Channel 4’s headquarters and Odeon West End cinema will host events during their 8th annual British Urban Film Festival.
This year’s four-day festival will launch on Thursday 5 September with a day of free events hosted at Channel 4; followed by an opening night gala on Friday 6 September at the Odeon in London’s Leicester Square, Europe’s biggest cinema screen.
Earlier this week, festival director Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe, said: ‘Leicester Square knows how to roll out the red carpet only this time it will be the BUFF carpet.
‘We have exactly 100 days to prepare for this, we are excited to make the announcement and very appreciative to Odeon Cinemas for making it happen.’
Further screenings will take place at Oxford House in Bethnal Green and Genesis Cinema in Whitechapel.
A full programme will be announced during a press conference at Channel 4 on Friday 5 July. Tickets will go on sale from 10am Wednesday 17 July.
