The Kush Film Boutique 2015 (Overview of screenings)

23 December 2015




It’s the end of another year and it has been a satisfying one and we were able to accomplish one of our special goals in relaunching our film club the renowned Kush ‘Film Boutique’. The film club was ended in 2013 after 15 years of fantastic film screening events. It is the UK’s longest running urban film club which has created a platform for black filmmakers since 1998.

Originally known as The Kush Film Club, it was and still is the UK’s première exhibition platform where patrons were the first to enjoy première & exclusive film screenings for films like: The Players Club, Eye’s Bayor, Rush Hour, The Hurricane, Ghost Dog, Belly, The Best Man, The Brothers, Baby Boy, Romeo Must Die, Shaft, Me, Myself & Irene, Love & Basketball, Down To Earth, Roll Bounce, Bullet Boy, Ray, Coach Carter, Beauty Shop, Four Brothers, Hustle & Flow, Better Mus’ Come, Baggage Claim and too many others to mention right now (of course you can read the full list here biog here).

We would like to thank everyone that supported the September 2015 relaunch of the Kush ‘Film Boutique’. As stated in our publicity we wanted to place a special emphasis this time around on screening films that matter – films that focus on social injustice, community development along with other important global matters all with the aim of making a difference.

We screened two important films this year 3½ Half Minutes, 10 Bullets and Black Panthers: Vanguard of The Revolution and the support was fantastic and really, really appreciated by the staff here at Kush. It made it all worthwhile and we most definitely realised (once again) how important the film club was; and how much it was needed and appreciated by you the public.

We would like to THANK all those that turned out for our last special Film Boutique “Revolution” themed event showcasing the acclaimed documentary film ‘Black Panthers: Vanguard of The Revolution’ by master documentary filmmaker Stanley Nelson. This event happened on the 17th November 2015 and all took hold of the revolutionary theme wholeheartedly and all came dressed to impress as revolutionaries for the night (berries, afro’s, leather jackets, gloves etc)

It truly was one of the best screenings Kush has organised for quite some time, the atmosphere was tremendous and powerful, it was a great turnout and the sense of comradeship was invigorating.

2016 here we come!!

Kush Promotions, Choices Consortium & media partners present on Tuesday 17th November a special themed film screening event for the acclaimed and newly released American documentary film Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution directed by Stanley Nelson.

On this day the patrons of the Film Boutique will be able to enjoy great networking whilst enjoying a special revolutionary soul, funk reggae DJ set by the renowned Ronnie Herel plus a special live performance by World-Changer Rapper Mikel Ameen (brother of actor Aml Ameen).

There will be invited guests from the world of film/TV and a special discussion after the film (which we hope will be more of a rallying call for all revolutionaries to step up and state how they plan to make a positive difference in today’s traumatic world).

This will be a reflective event but everything will also be done in an appreciative joyful manner!
