Black Panther (2018) and Black Panther: Wakanda Forever (2022) director and screenwriter Ryan Coogler is the 2022 keynote speaker of the prestigious David Lean Lecture.

This event is closed for new bookings.

Black Panther found phenomenal success; making history as the first big-budget film to be fronted by a predominantly black superhero ensemble. Having made his mark as a socially-engaged filmmaker with Fruitvale Station (2013) and commercially-successful with Creed (2015), it was Coogler’s vision of a new Marvel-verse in Black Panther that cemented him in Hollywood. With box office takings of over $1 billion worldwide, the film was hailed as a major move forward for African-American representation, on and off-screen. 

BAFTA's David Lean Lecture is a highlight of BAFTA’s public programme – educating, informing and inspiring the public by providing rare insight into the craft and method of some of the world’s leading and sector defining filmmakers.


BAFTA is an arts charity that is open and welcoming to everyone. This means we want every visit to BAFTA 195 Piccadilly to be as enjoyable and comfortable as possible.
