Film Access Training: Anti-racism

February 21, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

The purpose of the training is to provide a ‘baseline’ awareness of issues around (anti) racism within the film sector. It will specifically explore the forms and manifestations of racism in broader society, and in the specific context of filmmaking and film access.  

This baseline will then provide a backdrop to dig at the flashpoints around racism in film production, film education and film-delivery and reception, and the practical steps that can be taken at the individual and institutional levels to remedy these.  

The overall spirit of the training is to enable participants as a ‘community of practice’ – commissioners of film access projects, and film producers and educators – to draw from their experiences of engagement with racially minoritised groups to challenge behaviours and practices to advance anti-racist and anti-discriminatory structures and processes in the film industry. Additionally, the training will help participants to find modes of thinking, engagement and representations to advance access to film programmes for, by, and among racially minoritised communities. 

Please Note that the training will encourage an open and frank conversation and sharing of ideas. The training will therefore provide a space and encouragement for participants to bring along any issues relating to racial justice, equality and inclusion in the film industry they would like to explore! 

To make these sessions as relevant and useful as possible for participants, registered participants will be expected to have some basic familiarity with the topics or undergone basic training on the topics covered by the training. 

When: 21 February 2023, 2-4pm 

Where: Online; a Zoom link will be shared with attendees one day prior
