Special Industry Screening of Britishness
It's great that the Independent Cinema Office [ICO] have programmed Eelyn's latest film, Britishness for their upcoming I.D. Screening Days event taking place 26-27 Sept in Nottingham. ICO Screening Days provide an opportunity for film programmers from around the country to preview new films and explore new ways of engaging audiences. This Screening Day is programmed around the theme of Inclusion and Diversity and Britishness sits alongside five other great films including Ken Loach's Sorry We Missed You and Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje's Farming.
Following the screening Eelyn will be joined by writer Désirée Reynolds. Together they will facilitate a discussion exploring how the film can be used as a starting point for schools and young people to engage in overlooked aspects of British history around Empire and colonialism.
