Developing the next generation of Black Independent Filmmakers in Birmingham
Back In is a flagship programme investing in Birmingham’s future black filmmakers. Reaching creative talent from across the city region’s diverse communities and vibrant neighbourhoods and supporting them through 6 months training with industry experts & an opportunity to have their original ideas commissioned.
Statistically speaking, the Black British filmmaker doesn’t exist (Creative Skillset, 2016). The truth is this: across the UK there are thousands of British Black and Minority Ethnic (BME) film graduates and self-taught independents running flat-out on a daily treadmill of low-budget music videos and no-budget YouTube promotions and short docs.
Theme of conference: How do we get Broadcasters to best work with Black Filmmakers in the region?
Date: Wed, December 5, 2018
