1st Annual Convention Showcasing Black Excellence in Film + HETV

About this event

WELCOME TO THE INAUGURAL TNB XPO!

2-Day Hybrid Programme

30th March (Picturehouse Central) – 31st March (Online)

Join us for the first TNB XPO - an annual convention created by The New Black Film Collective (TNBFC) with support from ScreenSkills, Film London, BFI, FDA, and IFT. This landmark event showcases Black excellence and encourages increased diversity within British film and TV.

With a fantastic line-up of talks, screenings, pitching, and networking, TNB XPO gives Black creatives and industry professionals the chance to exchange ideas, fill gaps in recruiting and develop a genuinely inclusive filmmaking ecosystem. Our vision is to help the wider industry become more diverse, resulting in box office success and social impact.

The event also spotlights 50 Black Producers graduating from the ScreenSkills Pro-Create Mentoring Programme. Since starting the programme, which combined mentorship and masterclasses, a number of our alumni have had their work broadcast on BBC, ITV, and HBO Max. At TNB XPO you can meet this talented cohort of Writers, Directors, and Producers, share your ambitions for an inclusive industry, and connect with future collaborators.

Tickets are free but limited so book asap.

Refreshments provided.
