Women Like Me virtual film night: showcasing and celebrating BAME female filmmakers and stories
Join Women Like Me for our first live-streamed film night, as we showcase
Join Women Like Me for our first live-streamed film night, as we showcase diverse films and animations created by women of colour in the U.K.
Through the night we’ll be presenting work from emerging filmmakers across different disciplines and feature some guest interviews from women within the industry too.
We’ll also encourage our viewers and participants on the night to network with one another through the live stream comment sections, share links to your work, information about your roles and goals and aspirations in hope of fostering connections for future collaborations during and post quarantine.
We feel it’s important to support women of colour filmmakers at this time as whilst we see an unprecedented increase the consumption of film and television content, however, it’s still important to remember that women of colour have been deeply under-represented within these industries, with below-the-line film crew positions across 300 top movies from 2016 to 2018 only including 1.4% of editors, 1.5% of production designers, and 1.6% of producers as women of colour.
We hope we can use this night to celebrate and showcase some of the emerging talent working to break through and increase representation in the industry. So please join us to view this beautiful work.
