Bas-Film-Club was a monthly film club (during Covid 19 Lockdown), allowing members to suggest a movie which is available to watch online. The film club primarily focuses on BAME Filmmakers and Creatives. After we have watched the film, a group zoom video chat will follow, to facilitate discussion around each film.

Bas-Film-Club is open to everyone, and if you would like to find out more information, suggest a film, please email

Pressure (1975)

Hailed as Britain's first black feature film, Pressure is a hard-hitting, honest document of the plight of disenchanted British-born black youths. Set in 1970s London, it tells the story of Tony, a bright school-leaver, son of West Indian immigrants, who finds himself torn between his parents' church-going conformity and his brother's Black Power militancy.
Director: Horace Ové

Please join us for Bas-Film-Club (June) where we will be doing a live group film watch of Pressure via zoom, followed by a group discussion. If you would like to watch the film independantly and join us solely for the discussion, that is also great. You can watch the film via BFI here.
