Black International Cinema Berlin: May 7-11 2014, Rathaus Schöneberg

Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre, under the production and direction of Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith and Prof. Gayle McKinney Griffith, present the 29th edition of the annual intercultural and interdisciplinary festival, Black International Cinema Berlin.
The event will occur from May 7-11, 2014 for the 6th time at Rathaus Schöneberg, Berlin/Germany, in cooperation with the Commissioner for Integration of the district Tempelhof/Schöneberg, Gabriele Gün Tank and in association with the Embassy of the United States of America, Berlin.

Subsequently Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre, under the curation of Prof. Donald Muldrow Griffith, will present as part of the festival, the visual documentation and photographic exhibition "Footprints in the Sand?" from July 1 until August 31, 2014 in the foyer of Rathaus Schöneberg.

The festival screens cinema from Africa, the African Diaspora and films from various international and intercultural backgrounds and perspectives. Besides the films and exhibition, the festival presents seminars, discussions and artistic performances.

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 event is open to ALL filmmakers and contributes to better understanding and increasing cooperation between people from various cultural, ethnic, national, religious and socio-economic backgrounds, in order to reduce prejudices and support a peaceful and constructive living together in our multi-faceted societies.
