Black International Cinema Berlin originated from the Black Cultural Festival, which was produced and directed by Fountainhead®     Tanz Théâtre in 1986 for the first time in Europe, a 3-week event     in Berlin, which presented the contributions of Black people to world culture     through film, theater, dance, music, workshops and seminars, and was an homage     to the legendary tap dancer, Carnell Lyons.

The venues were the Theatermanufaktur am Halleschen   Ufer from March 3-16, music – dance – theatre; Hochschule der Künste Berlin     on March 11, symposium; Kino Arsenal from March 17-23, film.

Organization and Artistic Direction: Prof.     Gayle McKinney Griffith (USA/Berlin), Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith (USA/Berlin),     Donald Muldrow McKinney Griffith II (USA/Berlin), Dr. Ntongela Masilela (South     Africa); in cooperation with: Prof. Dr. Abdul Alkalimat (USA), Uazuvara Ewald     Katjivena (Namibia), Getinet Belay (Ethiopia), Joliba Africa Center; Organization:     Erika Gregor (Arsenal Cinema, Germany); Organization Assistance: Annette Koschmieder     (Germany)

Since then, Fountainhead®     Tanz Théâtre produces and directs the Black International Cinema     each year in Berlin and additionally, in other European and US-American cities.

The festival focuses on presenting works of an artistic,     cultural or political nature coinciding with the general educational, social,     artistic and economic interest of people from Africa, the African Diaspora     and people with an interest in participating in intercultural communication     and the resultant interfacing and sharing of educational, social, artistic     and economic resources.

Furthermore, Black International     Cinema is open to ALL filmmakers and contributes to better understanding and     increasing cooperation between people from various cultural, ethnic, national     and religious backgrounds, in order to reduce prejudice and support a peaceful     and respectful living together in our multi-faceted societies.

Black International Cinema is a festival based     upon our mission statement and the objectives and methods as stated within     the entry form.
