Black International Cinema Berlin
The initiatives Black International Cinema Berlin (BICB), together with Fountainhead® Tanz Theatre and the Collegium - Forum & Television Program Berlin gather an international, intercultural community of persons engaged in achieving increasing understanding and cooperation between individuals and groups in support of democratic procedures and the elimination of violence, religious, ethnic and gender persecution, youth exploitation, homophobia and racial hatred through the process of art, education, culture and dialogue.
