Creative Industries Festival: Diversifying audiences: community cinema
Speakers who make a difference in Mexico, Brazil and the UK will talk about how community cinema in unexpected spaces, from indigenous villages to building facades and screenings in the peripheries, can reach out to and form new audiences that would otherwise be excluded.
Chaired and facilitated by PhD student Sylvia Morgado de Queiroz.
