Last Friday I went to London the Prince Charles Cinema to the Black Film Makers (BFM) awards, which closed the BFM Festival season. We (Firstborn Creatives) had a lovely film called ‘Confetti’ nominated for the awards, which was written & directed by Shiloh Harmitt. We didn’t win anything, but it was still an inspiring event and just re-established the need of films from the African continent and diaspora to get audiences far and wide. I would be interested to know in what context the films were made. Were they self-funded?
It also re-affirmed the importance in the need of more access to media tools by more people.
