“Our annual DIVERSE Festival provides a fantastic opportunity for the industry to come together and share experiences on delivering inclusion and diversity on and off-screen. We’re extremely excited to be holding the DIVERSE festival in Bradford this year, as we look forward to establishing our National HQ in nearby Leeds.” – Ian Katz, Director of Programmes, Channel 4
Asma shared some of her poems and work with the group of 18 young people, who were given opportunities to improve their writing and script editing skills. In addition they learnt how their voices can be turned into a powerful film seen by Channel 4 representatives and thousands of people worldwide via an online broadcast. The group were also able to attend the Channel 4 Diverse Festival Briefing: Driving Industry Voices to Encourage Real Social Equality.
“Such a pleasure to produce a film that allowed the citizens of Bradford to come together and to show the world what Bradford has to offer.” – Jamie Hutchison, Producer
“We created a film that symbolises Bradford working together as a city and to celebrate the city and its people… To create a visual journey showcasing the culture of Bradford.” – Rob Pritchard, Director
