25 Feb 2019

Foyle Film Festival reveals a jam-packed line up for the 2019 Intercultural & Anti-Racism Programme

Foyle Film Festival's highly anticipated Intercultural & Anti-Racism programme is jam packed with award-winning features, special events, guest panelists and speakers and workshops.

The programme will address and respond to issues relating to human rights and inequality, including racism, homophobia, sexism, prejudice and discrimination.

Guest speakers will include political campaigner and filmmaker Jacqueline Walker and Ailbhe Griffiths, a restorative justice campaigner who will be participating in a panel discussion following a screening of The Meeting, which details the real life story of a meeting between Ailbhe and the man who subjected her to a horrific sexual assault 9 years previously.

Oscar® winning films such as BlacKKKlansman and A Star is Born will be screened, alongside critically acclaimed features such as A Private War, The Wife and Ray & Liz. The 50th anniversary of the Stone Wall Riots is celebrated with a double bill screening of the seminal classic 1985 and the documentary 50 Years Legal, which reflects on LGBTQ life in the UK since homosexuality was decriminalised in 1967.

Festival favourites, the cinematic breakfasts, will also return with morning showings of West Side Story and Crazy Rich Asians.
