The Black British Filmmaker’s Guide to Success addresses the need for an up-to-date, practical resource that caters specifically for black content work. No book has been written that specifically deals with the practical aspects of financing, marketing and distribution for black content work internationally. The work of significant 21st century black British filmmakers remains undocumented.
It is a personal development guide that is packed with very practical guidance to assist filmmakers in securing funding, marketing and distribution opportunities for their films. The book contains extensive good practice interviews with key filmmakers and decision makers in the industry.
