This year special screenings are scheduled for The University of Gloucestershire, Cheltenham, UK; and the College of Arts and Creative Enterprises in Abu Dhabi.
The Black Maria Film and Video Festival presents the vast majority of programming in person, hosted by a festival associate, which facilitates the full appreciation of the work through interactive dialogue with the audience.
