Festival was established with the aim of filling a void within London film
exhibition scene. There was a complete absence of black world cinema both in
terms of the multiplexes or existing festivals like London, Edinburgh which

marginalized. The festival therefore was established to make a difference and to
bring the unseen to light.

Golddigger Killer has cameos by some of Hip-Hop’s top comedians which
allow humor to flow through without deviating form the film’s
