Participants at the event included Moussa Ibrahim, a prominent figure in the anti-NATO Libyan Resistance, and Leila Khaled, a member of the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine.

The first annual Malcolm X Film Festival takes place in seven cities across Britain, organized by the Malcolm X Movement (MXM), an anti-imperialist organization.

The festival is mainly focused on three aspects of Malcolm X's life, including "Civil Rights & Black Power", "Global Unity & Internationalism", and "Legacy, Continuities & Challenges", with related speeches and interviews from him, especially the last few years of his life.

Malcolm X was an American Muslim minister and a human rights activist known as a courageous advocate for the rights of blacks. He was a man who indicted white America in the harshest terms for its crimes against black Americans, and was assassinated in February 1965 at the age of 39.
