Cultural Zephyr e.V.
is a yearly interdisciplinary, intercultural film/video
festival produced and directed by
Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre / THE COLLEGIUM – Forum &
Television Program Berlin / “Footprints in the Sand?” – Exhibition
in association with
Cultural Zephyr
and screens cinema from Africa, the African Diaspora
and films from varied intercultural backgrounds
or perspectives.
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.
Since then, Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre produces and di
rects 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, cu
ltural 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.
