Working Towards an Inclusive Cinema Culture
Posted on August 6, 2021
Following the events of summer 2020, specifically the murder of George Floyd and the ensuing Black Lives Matter protests worldwide, the ICO has been developing an Equality, Diversity and Inclusion action plan. As part of this process we discussed the plan with a group of critical friends from outside the organisation, to gain feedback on our proposals and to ensure our work is collaborative, well-informed and effective in elevating the needs of people who experience racism. In this piece one of those critical friends, Lara Ratnaraja, discusses her experience of this process and her vision of a truly inclusive cinema culture.
