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 7th edition of the annual British Film Festival.
We are bringing the most exciting, thought-provoking and critically acclaimed new films from the UK to Azerbaijan.
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.
The 2022 edition of the British Film Festival puts the global climate emergency into spotlight, creating opportunities for climate cooperation, dialogue and action. 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.
The British Film Festival is a central pillar of our commitment to equality, diversity and inclusion through film.
All films will be screened in the original language.
