Offering an informal space where BAME filmmakers, activists, artists and creatives can introduce and discuss their work with fellow practitioners, these new sessions (held once a month over six months) will feature talent working with or inspired by the moving image.

Saturday 2 June
12:00-13:00 Studio

In this month’s session we investigate how a generation of queer people of colour (QTPOC) are represented on and off screen, and what challenges they might face. Our session will be chaired by Chardine Taylor-Stone, in conversation with Kartel Brown, director of Out and Bad (50min), and Seye Isikalu, director of Yellow in Blue (13min). Brown is a DJ, filmmaker, journalist and influencer on London’s dancehall scene. Isikalu is a fashion photographer and filmmaker whose work has been featured in Elle South Africa, Afropunk and Fader magazine.

Saturday 7 July
12:00-13:00 Studio

Our fourth session features Laura Kirwan-Ashman. Kirwan-Ashman is a screenwriter, filmmaker, and co-founder of female film collective Sorta Kinda Maybe Yeah. Her directorial debut Magic won the Eye Want Change smartphone filmmaking competition and she has directed work for Dazed. As a writer, she was chosen for the Betty Box and Peter Rogers Comedy Writing Programme and the BBC Comedy Writersroom. She is also a Channel 4 Commissioning Mentee. Kirwan-Ashman’s work focuses on Blackness, queerness, and the female experience.
