Curated by Barbara Chirinos in partnership with VIFF Vancity Theatre’s Tom Charity, our annual Black History Month film series is a significant contribution to Vancouver's cultural diversity, shining a spotlight on African-North American film and history. This year’s program includes exciting new work from young Canadian filmmakers (Black Cop; Brown Girl Begins), a focus on inspirational women, and finds recurring themes in the power of music, political protest, and education.

The centrepiece of Black History Month at Vancity Theatre is the exclusive Vancouver run of Senegal’s Félicité, one of 9 films currently on the shortlist for the Best Foreign Language Academy Award, and the Audience Award-winner at the Palm Springs Film Festival 2018 (screening from Feb 29). Other highlights include To Sleep with Anger by honorary Academy Award winner Charles Burnett, the acclaimed Sundance documentary Whose Streets, and Anita, about #metoo pioneer Anita Hill, screening in our new Vancity Impact Talk series on Feb 12 followed by a panel discussion.
