Legacy Film sprang into life in 2010 as a Brighton (UK) based film festival. Our aim is to provide platforms and spaces giving greater access to film by and about the African and Caribbean diaspora.
We have run film festivals, workshops, Q&A’s, debates, events and one off screenings in a variety of venues and locations in East Sussex and continue to build on these successes. Our audiences are broad and range from those who wish to see themselves more widely represented on screen to anyone who loves film and wishes to see content from more diverse and alternative angles.
We continue to seek partnerships and broaden our reach across the UK, as well as the region in which we are based as members (Film Hub South East)
