Article: EVENT: Inclusion & Diversity Screening Days sessions and films announced

Independent Cinema Office have added two fantastic new releases to their programme for ID (Inclusion & Diversity) Screening Days, which will take place online on Weds 7 Sept and in-person and online on Fri 9 Sept at Brewery Arts, Kendal.

ID Screening Days 2022 is a hybrid event for cinemas and exhibitors of all kinds looking to strengthen their commitment to diversity and inclusion. It brings preview screenings and curated sessions that make a lasting difference to who is included in the audience and workforce of UK film.

One of the films being shown to attendees is the first Somali entry to the Oscars, The Gravedigger’s Wife, a moving, radiant story of love and community. Also included is ICO’s stunning new programme of artists’ and archival shorts, Right of Way which takes a look at who gets to feel at home in the British countryside.

ICO have also added their first two sessions, exploring the best routes to meaningful organisational change and how to bring in external partners to share your voice: Making Change at the Roots and Successful Co-Creation.

Look out for updates and make sure to book your place ahead of the deadline (Fri 19 August)! Easy-to-access financial support is available to help people attend who would otherwise find it difficult to do so including support for passes, travel, accommodation and digital attendance costs.
