Event description

Description

Back In Logo

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.

How can young Black filmmakers get off this treadmill and onto a path to productive creativity, autonomy and success?

Find out how, with filmmaker and entreprenuer Daniel Alexander who brings his ten-year industry experience and his insight as a manager of Punch Records' BACK IN programme. Back In is a six month artist development scheme for early career filmmakers from BME backgrounds.

Meet Daniel Alexander and find out about his journey and join in the panel discussion on Monday 20 November 2017 from 5pm - 7.30pm. Programme as follows:

  • 5pm - Introduction with Dr Rajinder Dudrah (Professor of Cultural Studies & Creative Industries BCU)

  • 5.05pm - Key Note by Daniel Alexander (Entrepeneur & Back In Manager)

  • 5.25pm - Panel Discussion with Back In group (Catalyst Studios, Tenisha White, Click Jones, Remani Love & Emphaim Morgan), hosted by a very special guest

  • 6.15pm - Networking

  • 7.30pm - Close
