Frequently Asked Questions


Here are the questions we get asked most frequently.

Q. Is the festival at a cinema or online?

Both. The festival runs primarily in cinemas and iconic venues, but we will also be online for those who are unable to attend in person or who prefer to enjoy from the comfort of their own homes and we are also hosting a special day of outdoor screenings for those who would like the company of others in a safe space. 

Q. If I miss an online screening will I get the chance to watch it later?

Online Screenings will be available for the duration of the festival. However if you miss the Live Q&A as per the schedule you will miss out on the Interactive Director Q&A.

Q. Is I Will Tell a Black film festival?

The Festival has a significant focus on the Black and other under-represented communities, but as we learnt from Martin Luther King Jr. we cannot fight for justice for our Black brothers and sisters and ignore the plight of others who are our neighbours. As we continues to denounce racism against Black people we also stand up for those in Ukraine and in other conflict zones around the world, fight for the environment and for beauty and creativity and music. We also celebrate our heroes such as the wonderful Mahalia Jackson.

Q. Is I Will Tell a Christian film festival?

The Festival was founded by Trinidadian Jenny Lee who was inspired by her Christian faith to tackle some of life’s big questions, to shine a light of hope on those who have been overlooked, under-served or mis-represented and to share the universal message of God's Love.  I Will Tell is a festival for anyone who is concerned with issues such as race, social justice, relationship, faith, war and peace, gender issues, global politics and community cohesiveness.
