Supporting diverse talent

Supported by the Mayor of London’s London Enterprise Panel, this project forms part of Film London’s strategy to address the lack of diverse talent entering the industry.

This is based on Creative Skillset’s latest census, which reported the number of black, Asian or minority ethnic talent working in the production industries was only 5.4% in 2012, which is a fall from 6.7% in 2009 and 7.4% in 2006.
