We've relaunched Bounce Cinema to tackle the lack of representation in the film industry.
In the UK, women account for 13% of directors who work in the film industry today (BFI Research and Statistics). Whilst just 5.3% of the film production workforce, were from Black, Asian and minority ethnic backgrounds in recent statistics published by the British Film Institute.
We launched Bounce Cinema a film club and fund to tackle the lack of representation in the film industry. The project will create a space for people to enjoy film, network and discover new talent whilst a percentage of the profits made from the events will contribute to supporting young creative talent who may not have the tools they need to kick start their careers.
Mathieu says, “I wanted to create something that I wished existed when I first embarked on my creative journey. It’s important we create our own solutions. If we don’t tackle our own problems, then who will?”
The next Bounce Cinema screening is taking place on Tuesday 6th March at WeWork, Moorgate and will showcase a series of independent film makers followed by a Q & A.
