Taking place in one of the most diverse boroughs in the country, these film nights are an opportunity to discover, explore and celebrate the work of non-white, London-based filmmakers. The screenings will raise important issues around representation and the diversity of ideas in film. The filmmakers will also discuss the challenges of being a filmmaker of colour and how they navigate their way through an industry in which they are outsiders.
The programme itself will be very diverse, featuring award-winning shorts and documentaries, from sci-fi and drama to comedy. These screenings are aimed at those interested in films not available at the multiplexes, and young filmmakers hoping to learn from directors further down their artistic journey. The informal atmosphere aims to encourage lively discussions.
