Black for a Cause has already been making waves in the independent and short film industry, with the documentary being selected for screening at two film festivals. It was shown at the Winchester Short Film Festival, where it also picked up a nomination for the Hampshire Prize, which recognises directors who live, study or work in Hampshire. It was also shown at the independent and alternative cinema event Mirror Mountain Film Festival in Ottawa, Canada, where it was described as ‘engrossing’.
