Is the artistic celebration of black people in film indivisible from activism in cinema ?How is this realisation for black filmmakers, in front and behind the camera, leading a revolution that goes beyond race and is changing perspectives for those considered ‘other’. Jordan Peele, Ryan Coogler, Ava DuVernay, Clare Anyiam-Osigwe – recent years have seen recognition for Black directors skyrocket. Yet, how do filmmakers reconcile their art and their activism? What were the precursors to their success, and how can these be replicated by rising stars? What will it take to increase representation in the art form of film, for all people seen as ‘other’?

SPEAKERS: Nathalie Emmanuel, Noel Clarke, Femi Oguns
