As the American Black Film Festival grows, so does its audience. S.O.U.L. Fest will return to the U.K. for its 5th anniversary with a global screening series.

The ABFF Global series is scheduled for September, 16-18, 2022. Presented by ABFF Ventures and Sony Pictures Entertainment in association with S.O.U.L. Fest (based in London), it will take place at the British Film Institute and other venues.

In a recent statement, the founder of ABFF and CEO of ABFF Ventures said,

 “ABFF is rooted in building bridges and fostering alliances between Black content creators around the world. SPE’s support of ABFF Global has allowed us to further this mission. We have a deep respect for the S.O.U.L. organization and appreciate them welcoming us to be a part of their annual event.”

Iyare Igiehon, the director of S.O.U.L. Fest, also made remarks in the statement. “We are delighted to partner with the ABFF, an organization we have long admired and been inspired by. We established S.O.U.L. Fest with an ethos of community and have found Jeff Friday and the ABFF team share our values and our desire to forge links across the African diaspora. This collaboration will bring about greater experiences for audiences, open up opportunities for the talent and support and further strengthen the UK as a node on the global Black cinematic network.”
