Article: Inclusion & Diversity Screening Days 2023

Registration is now open for the ICO’s Inclusion & Diversity Screening Days, a key event to help film exhibitors make a lasting difference to who is included in their audiences & workforce. This year’s edition is taking place online on 26 September and in person at Storyhouse, Chester on 28 September.


So far, this year’s programme includes previews of Mami Wata, a genre-bending fable that brings a West African deity to vibrant life; Is There Anybody Out There?, a revelatory documentary in which debut feature filmmaker Ella Glendining goes on a journey in search of someone else with a body like hers; Queendom, Agniia Galdanova’s powerful, award-winning documentary about a young drag activist in Putin’s Russia; Girl, Adura Onashile’s heartfelt story about a mother-daughter duo struggling to start a new life; and Your Fat Friend, Jeanie Finlay’s eye-opening and emotive film, which won this year’s Sheffield DocFest Audience Award.

The first sessions to be confirmed include discussions on how to structure and plan a successful funding application, building inclusive spaces for the workers and volunteers in our industry, and a care-led approach to film screenings.

Plus, if you’re aged 18-30 you can get a pass for just £10.

Register by Friday 15 September.
