Who gets to ‘make it’ in the UK screen sector? How can creators, funders, businesses and cinemagoers encourage more diversity on and off our screens?
The CAMEo Research Institute invites you to an evening exploring diversity in the UK screen sector. This free event – open to all – organised by the CAMEo Research Institute at the University of Leicester at Phoenix Leicester, will explore these issues.
The evening will include:
- The public launch of the BFI Workforce Diversity in the UK Screen Sector report and an update from the BFI on how it is working to support and increase diversity and inclusion
- A screening of The Acting Class (2017) – a documentary about class barriers in the acting industry
- A Q&A with the film’s directors Deirdre O’Neill and Mike Wayne, a representative from the BFI and Birmingham-based actress Aimee Powell (BBC, Birmingham Repertory)
