Event overview

Celebrities attended: Amma Asante, David Oyelowo, Noel Clarke

Highly acclaimed British actor and producer David Oyelowo will be the lead speaker at this year’s BFI London Film Festival’s headline industry event, the Black Star Symposium. 

Oyelowo will be launching the Black Star Symposium the morning after the Festival opens with the European Premiere of Amma Asante’s eagerly-anticipated A United Kingdom, in which he stars, and he will be joined by British and international actors, filmmakers and thought-leaders to explore why opportunities for black actors to shine on screen in the US and the UK remain limited, and debate what more can be done to effect positive change.
