The scheme aims to recruit a majority of candidates from these underrepresented groups in the film industry – Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people and those who consider themselves to be disabled.

Applications are now open for the trainee scheme which runs from April to December 2017. For further information click here.

Black Lives Matter – A Poem

 

Take a look at the world we live in today

Take a look at humanity

Is this what we were made to be?

Is this a world that you and I are a part of?

Inequality, Discrimination and Hate has now become the norm.

Are people not more than just the colour of their skin ?

Maybe the issue lies From Within

Ask yourself:

Do I have love?

 

Raise a cry now for the lost lives

Black Lives matter

I refuse to be silent

Until the world start to realise

That Black lives matter.

 

Raise a cry for our brothers and sisters

Their blood are crying out.

 

Fear not, Our God is a God of justice.

Will he not fight for those who cry out to him day and night?

Fear not, Our God reigns!
