TRACE has signed a partnership agreement with the British Urban Film Festival (BUFF) to sponsor the Best Feature category at the upcoming British Urban Film Festival Awards ceremony, taking place on Sunday 18th September 2016.
Established in 2005, the British Urban film Festival has pioneered the promotion of British urban cinema. Supported by a board comprising of producers, actors, journalists and film critics, Buff presents a platform where urban independent filmmakers can showcase their work to the widest possible audience.
Olivier Laouchez, TRACE co-founder, chairman and CEO, commented:
« TRACE has always had a strong presence in contemporary urban culture and we are currently in an exciting period ahead of the launch of TRACE Play, our SVOD Platform. TRACE and BUFF share the same vision to provide audiences with access to authentic urban entertainment that creates long lasting impressions. I’m confident that our partnership with BUFF will lead to a strong rapport which will allow both parties to build a stronger foundation in our pursuit and support of urban talent »
Commenting on the deal, BUFF CEO, Emmanuel Anyiam-Osigwe said:
“Today’s announcement is yet another example of BUFF’s objective beyond 2020 to put filmmakers first and in doing so, help shape the future of urban film coverage by expanding our content offering, our digital availability and our geographical footprint. TRACE is one of the leading media brands and their generous sponsorship will allow BUFF to truly go global with our film festival and the awards. Long may the passion continue”.
