The Windrush Caribbean Film Festival is a non-profit, asset locked Community Interest Company with a very small operational team and staffed primarily by volunteers. We deliberately keep our ticket prices low to ensure accessibility for everyone from our communities, and offer our virtual programming for free although donations are accepted.
We are typical of the many non-profit organisations serving Britain’s Black communities who have to bootstrap with severely limited funding to deliver our mission. We were grateful to receive modest grants from Arts Council England and BFI, but certainly are nowhere close to what it takes to deliver a first class film festival and arts programme. Yet we did it!
By supporting WCFF, you can help us ensure that our celebration of talented filmmakers of African Caribbean heritage telling the stories of the Windrush generation and the Caribbean diaspora’s contributions to Britain continues and grows.
