The Screen Nation Foundation
The Screen Nation Foundation comprises of black British film and television professionals from all within the UK including actors, writers, directors and producers. Designed to empower and encourage diversity with the motion picture and audio-visual industries, The Foundation primarily agrees on the annual list of categories and nominees via a committee vote.
The Screen Nation Foundation is open to bodies and individuals committed to our aims and objectives: to be a resource to all and a professional association working with established industry unions, societies and associations to diversify their memberships.
Ad hoc research has shown that many BME professionals support the Foundation initiative and feel it can bring benefits and act as both a catalyst for further development of the sector and is a clear indication of the sector’s growing maturity and significance to the UK film & TV industry overall.
Current basic entry into The Foundation is through nomination for a Screen Nation Award. Entry regulations are being expanded to enable all qualifying black British film & television professionals to apply.
