The 2014 British Urban Film Festival will screen the UK premiere of The Trials of Muhammad Ali in London's Leicester Square on Thursday 4 September (hosted by Sky Sports boxing pundit & promoter Spencer Fearon).
The film will also be screened in London's East End on Sunday 7 September. The full line-up for the festival will be announced at a press conference at Channel 4 Headquarters at the end of July. Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe, director of the British Urban Film Festival, said he was thrilled to be promoting one of the biggest film events in the UK this year. "Today's announcement is a big boost to all fans of cinema in the UK and will give people a reason to come to our festival. We will attract thousands of film fans to BUFF over the coming months - assuring those who want to catch all the action that the British Urban Film Festival will be far more accessible and affordable compared to other film festivals." Tickets go on sale from Saturday 26 July.
The award-winning The Trials of Muhammad Ali is available on DVD and VOD in the USA, and has screened at film festivals across the world to great acclaim. We are delighted to finally bring the film to the UK!
