London is one of the most iconic film destinations in the world, yet a lack of diversity often means it’s the same stories that get told on the big screen.
LDN Filmmakers is a free fast-track film course designed to shake up the industry and help young Londoners realise their creative potential – regardless of their background.
About the project
Created by Mayor of London in partnership with DCM, LDN Filmmakers gives young people a platform to share their narratives and perspectives. Through writing, directing and editing, participants told their stories of life in London – stories that tend to be misunderstood by mainstream media.
Applications for LDN Filmmakers are now closed, but you can check out similar opportunities here: www.london.gov.uk/london-needs-you
