Cinematic icon Pam Grier comes to Birmingham and joins MAC in special screenings + live Q&A

  • Live onstage Q&A with Pam Grier as part of BFI Southbank season Pam Grier: Foxy, Fierce and Fearless
  • MAC will screen cult classics Coffy with a live onstage Q&A and Jackie Brown with a live introduction from Pam Grier

Cinematic icon Pam Grier will visit Birmingham for two special screenings at Midlands Arts Centre and a live onstage Q&A on Sun 11 September.

MAC will show two key films from Grier’s career, Jack Hill’s cult favourite Coffy (1973) and Quentin Tarantino’s masterful Jackie Brown (1997). An additional event organised by Cine-Excess, Building the Cinematic City, invites industry professionals to hear insights on how to promote diversity and inclusion within film, as well as developing new regional film talent.

The events form part of a major new retrospective programme from the BFI, Pam Grier: Foxy, Fierce and Fearless. The season celebrates Grier’s career, her rise to prominence in Blaxploitation movies of the 1970s, and her legendary performances in cult classics.

David Baldwin, Cinema Producer, MAC, said: It’s a real thrill to welcome Pam Grier to MAC this autumn. The word ‘icon’ is thrown around a lot, but Pam is the real deal, and legitimately broke down boundaries for Black actors in the early years of her screen career. She was the star of the show, and she still is.”
