Multi-award winning London-based Colourful Radio voted the Best Radio Station at the Urban Music Awards enters a unique media partnership with Kush Promotions & PR and their renowned exhibition platform the ‘Film Boutique’, the UK’s longest running and No 1 urban film club'.
 
Colourful Radio will support media promotions for the Kush Film Boutique and its monthly film screenings all supporting Kush’s 18 year history of creating a platform for black & minority filmmakers. A platform much-needed in this time of much talked about exclusion of minority talent from mainstream film and TV industries.


These monthly screenings of new and exclusive mainstream and indie short and feature films will take place at the prestigious Regent Street Cinema, in central London. The historical Regent Street cinema was recently refurbished and reopened in 2015 and is classified as the UK’s oldest established cinema and the place where the Lumiere brothers in 1896 demonstrated the new art of cinematographe.


This new partnership specifically created to champion established and aspiring urban talent explodes on the big screen on Thursday 17th March 2016 with a UK exclusive screening of new British romantic-drama Hard Time Bus starring Roger Griffiths (Chef) and Neil Reidman. Following that on Wednesday 13th April audiences will be able to see the award-winning film ‘Bessie’ based on the life of Blues legend Bessie Smith starring Queen Latifah.

About Kush
The ‘Kush Film Club’ was set up by Marlon Palmer in 1998 to create a platform for black filmmakers. The film club was relaunched as the Kush ‘Film Boutique’ in 2004 in the West End of London and proceeded to be in demand by UK distributors and went on to organise premiere & exclusive mainstream film screenings at cinemas like the Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Sq and the Odeon, Covent Garden until 2006. Marlon Palmer is the leading Marketing/PR and Film Exhibition specialist of urban/black films in the UK and through the film club and his PR Company Kush Promotions & PR has screened over 200 mainstream & indie feature & short films along with organising numerous PR campaigns for mainstream distributors for films like; Crash, Freedomland, Ong Bak, The Butler, 12 Years A Slave, Half A Yellow Sun, Fruitvale Station, Selma, Top Five and many others.   


The Film Boutique concept: A place where mature professional film lovers come together in perfect harmony to watch Exclusive & Premier mainstream film releases along with an excellent range of independent short & feature films in a pleasurable atmosphere with guest celebrity hosts, Q & A’s, guests from the world of film and TV, panel discussions and occasionally themed events with a DJ in the bar.


The Kush Film Boutique is the only consistent all-year round exhibition platform that caters first and foremost for minority filmmakers, aspiring and established; and affords these disadvantaged filmmakers the opportunity to have their work exhibited to new audiences.
