Comment on: UK film industry: All white at the top
As an agent I really cannot say that discrimination is the underlined issue. It has more to do with funders, writers, producers and directors wanting to work within a system that reflects diversity in creation and action. I worked at the Film Unit of the FCO for a few years back in the late 90s and saw how the colonial systems of old stifled points of view and filmmaking. It is a huge ask to dismantle and rebuild behaviours that are very deep rooted. It requires a collective desire for a whole new industry reboot! If talent alone leads this will eventually produce a well balanced system that we can all work with. Happy New Year!
The talent is there, it's about creating systems that are friendly to funders, producers and talent - that monitor and track equal opportunities at every level of filmmaking (not obstruct but compliment). Nepotism cannot rein forever and industry organisations need to reeducate their members and not worry about upsetting the gravy train!
Comment on: Clooney to receive BAFTA LA award
Very well deserved! An exemplary industry champion who is equally at ease stepping out of the spotlight to shine awareness on global concerns and issues most would not want to take on. Congrats Mr. Clooney!
Considering the present climate across Europe and adjoining Middle East. This news brings hope and encouragement to many creatives treading and bridging these waters. Dare I say 'well done Brussels'!
