  • Black Glory
    Black GloryThe stigmatisation of black women's hair has gone unchallenged for far too long. This has been fuelled by the idea that there is only one way to be beautiful and by extension, acceptable. Project Embrace aims to challenge this narrow and outdated idea of beauty. This short film addresses the discrimination and micro aggression black women face but also show them just how worthy they are of positive representation and celebration.

  • Shiny @ Trailer Park, London - Tue 23rd July
    Shiny @ Trailer Park, London - Tue 23rd JulyWhere Are The Women? And Why Should Men Care? We use this edition of Shiny to look at women in the commercial video industry. The panel will be led by the audience asking questions. So it's up you! As a starter and a help, we hope you'll ask some of these gnarly questions: What does the female director landscape look like in the commercial video industry? Are women directors getting commissioned more often and what level of the industry? How many female big hitters are there, compared to men
