1st - 9th November 2014 | Celebrating film across the City...
Another 9 days of fabulous film screenings and events to entertain and inspire.
You joined us at venues across Southampton for features and shorts, workshops and talks, artists film work and documentary - and music, LOTS of wonderful music and film.
Everything began on Saturday 1st November with the very special event Who is Oscar? which included an exclusive screening of the 1920 B&W silent film Within Our Gates by prolific African-American filmmaker Oscar Micheaux (1884-1951), director and producer of over 40 films and 7 novels. Oscar’s seminal film was accompanied by a live soundtrack from WOMAD international award winning Tanzanian musician Saidi Kanda. The opportunity to delve further into Oscar’s life was provided by a short (18.46 mins) film made by Tim Reid of Legacy Media Institute, revealing Oscar’s significance and achievements that still resonate today. The whole occasion was presented by host and spoken word artist Elmi Ali.
SFW14 continued through to Sunday 9 November with more great films events, concluding as always with the now legendary Film Pub Quiz at the Alexandra Pub!
