Our Creative Job Studio: FILM event on Thursday 22 August will bring young filmmakers and film enthusiasts (18-25 year olds) and established industry professionals together at Somerset House to share work, discuss ideas and investigate themes explored in the major new exhibition celebrating the past 50 years of Black creativity in Britain and beyond, Get Up, Stand Up Now.

We are looking for innovative young filmmakers (18-25-year olds) to submit their short films to be reviewed by a panel for the chance to be selected to screen at this event. We particularly encourage applications from people from under-represented backgrounds.
