The Festival of Commonwealth Film is dedicated to sharing cinema from across the Commonwealth with a UK audience. This year’s inaugural edition will be held at the British Museum in London on 14th – 15th April 2018, and includes feature films with a human rights focus from the Bahamas, India, Malta, Pakistan, Tonga and the United Kingdom.
Our goal is to represent the cultural diversity and richness of the Commonwealth, demonstrate the change-making power of cinema, and initiate dialogue on human rights issues.
