Screening Our Unseen Lives (S.O.U.L), an exclusive screening and networking event for the film and television industries, is to return for it’s first event of 2015 this February at the BFI Southbank.

S.O.U.L’s primary focus is improving the connections between black and ethnic minority film and TV professionals, celebrating their work and connecting them with industry executives from broadcasting and film. This will result in better representation of black and ethnic minority communities both in front of and behind the camera in mainstream television and cinema.

Past events have showcased brand new films shot by emerging black and ethnic minority directors providing them platform to develop their craft and an opportunity build their network. This event seeks to do more of the same showcasing another group of emerging directors, writers and actors.

After the event on February 13th, the general public will be invited to watch all of the films for S.O.U.L.’s two day screening event online. The event created by former BBC presenter, Iyare Igiehon, is not only focused on opening doors for emerging film and TV talent from Black and ethnic minority communities but to offer television audiences fresh quality programming.

“We want to address the issue of falling numbers of black and ethnic minority people in British film and TV. By creating a showcase of talent and an arena in which the members of our community can meet and better know each other we hope to stimulate the new connections that make new things possible”
