Representation of cultural and ethnic diversity on screen will be discussed this weekend at a film festival in Nottingham.

Throughout the event there’ll be talks on what filmmakers are, or should be doing to make the fictions of tomorrow more reflective of the diversity surrounding us.

This event is part of Future Perfect? Film Festival, which explores the sci-fi genre, looking beyond distant galaxies and instead turning a critical eye much closer to home, exploring our future as a society.

“We reckon a failure to equally represent all cultures and types of people on screen can have a really negative effect, and for that reason the Nottingham Alternative Film Network has always been deeply committed to sharing more diverse stories since we started a little over a year ago.”

– Thomas Humphrey and Sanpreet Janjua, Co-founders of the Nottingham Alternative Film Network
