About me

Creative element...different shades of black. Runs Joi Productions. I make dope stuff. Currently developing 3rd feature with @BFI Joi Productions is a Film and TV company that is focused on telling Black, Queer and Female-led stories. We believe in visibility and using our voices to enact change whilst serving a commercial audience. We also create branded content, including brands such as British Airways, Jaguar Land Rover and Apple. It is run by Joy Gharoro-Akpojotor, whose second feature film premiered at the BFI London Film Festival, 2016, and was also up for the IWC Filmmaker Award. She was part of the BFI Flare Mentorship Scheme 2016, in which her mentor was (and still continues to be) Ben Roberts, head of the BFI Film Fund, and also part of Filmonoics 2017, in which her mentor was Stephen Kelliher, Director at Bankside Films.
