Archive to Blockbuster - Diversifying the Big Screen

Join the A2BFour at Senate House London for a dazzling night as we unite our research as black and minority ethnic historians with our love of cinema to bring you 'Archive to Blockbuster'!  We will pitch ideas for films, based on our original academic research, to a panel of industry experts and a public audience. Our pitches showcase the histories of black Britain, Guyana, India and Uganda and directly address the concerns of #OscarsSoWhite as we promote roles for black and minority ethnic professionals both in front and behind the camera.
Our panel, chaired by BBC presenter Ritula Shah consists of actor and writer Vera Chok, screenwriter and author Farrukh Dhondy, academic Dr Althea Legal-Miller and screenwriter and historian Mike Phillips 

This event is part of the University of London's hub programme, 'Ministry of hope and fear', for the Being Human festival.
