British Council and the British Embassy in Baku are launching the seventh edition of the British Film Festival

On the eve of the 30th year anniversary of diplomatic relations between UK and Azerbaijan, the British Council in cooperation with the British Embassy and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Azerbaijan, is starting the seventh edition of the annual British Film Festival.

This year, the festival will be held on 3-15 March 2022, with screenings taking place at Nizami Cinema Centre and YARAT Contemporary Art Space. We are bringing the most exciting, thought-provoking and criticallyacclaimed new films from the UK to Azerbaijan. The 2022 edition of the British Film Festival puts the global climate emergency into spotlight, creating opportunities for climate cooperation, dialogue and action.

The festival will open with a retro comedy THE DUKE - a tale of robbery and a fight for justice, brought to cinema by the powerhouse partnership of Academy Award-winning actors Jim Broadbent and Helen Mirren. Two documentary films, THE PEOPLE V CLIMATE CHANGE and BREAKING BOUNDARIES: THE SCIENCE OF OUR PLANET will focus on climate emergency and what the human civilisation can do save our planet.

Media representatives are kindly invited to attend the opening of the festival at 18.30 on 3 March at Nizami Cinema Centre. In Azerbaijan, the British Film Festival is brought to you by the British Council in Azerbaijan, the British Embassy in Baku, and the Ministry of Culture of the Republic of Azerbaijan. We would also like to use this opportunity to offer our thanks to our partners Nizami Cinema Centre, YARAT Contemporary Art Space and CoolConnections Art Association.

The British Film Festival is a central pillar of our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion through film. All films will be screened in English.
