Black, Bold & Brilliant

The Black, Bold, & Brilliant series was created as a partnership between Utah Film Center, KRCL, and Utahn Convos after the tragic death of George Floyd last summer. Our initial event sought to address the often overlooked frustrations of the Black community. Using cinema as a mirror, this series is led by community members who guide audiences through their reflections and responses affecting the Black community. Each month, the topics, clips and films may change but the conversation always surrounds what it looks like to exist in the fullness of Black beauty, strength, and brilliance. We invite everyone to join!

Black Bold and Brilliant is a safe space that allows us to explore, celebrate, and speak to our culture. This project allows us to lift up our joy and celebrate our stories through film.” – Franque Bains, programming team
