Frequently Asked Questions


Here are the questions we get asked most frequently.

Q. Is the festival at a cinema or online?

In 2022 We are finally back in cinemas, but the festival will also be online for those 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?

Most Screenings will be available for 24 hours. However if you miss the Live you will miss out on the Interactive Director Q&A. A small number of films will only be available for the screening and will not be available afterwards.

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 and to shine a light of hope on those who have been overlooked, under-served or mis-represented. 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. Our invitation is to be challenged by these powerful stories, and people can take from the experience what is most relevant to them.
