"Cable and Cameras is an important intervention into Bristol film culture, providing a much needed space and a voice for Black, Asian and Ethnic Minority filmmakers. It's also a huge amount of fun, showcasing dynamic work from a range of up-and-coming and established filmmakers, and providing an exciting opportunity to not only see the work, but also to discuss, socialise and network."
Dr Charlotte Crofts ( Associate Professor of Filmmaking, UWE Bristol )
I love what Cables and Cameras is doing for the Bristol filmmaking community, it’s drawing together filmmakers and actors from across the city and providing a friendly and welcoming space to form new connections. It’s giving a great platform for BAME creatives to show their work and find new collaborators; and that’s vital in such a white male dominated industry. When I’m there I look around and I hear people introducing themselves and swapping details. There’s a long way to go but it feels like something is changing. And it’s exciting to be a part of it.

'Attending Cables & Cameras events have been an amazing experience for me. As an aspiring BME filmmaker, it's been a great opportunity to network with other filmmakers and creatives, and it's also been a privilege to see my short films on the big screen! Cables & Cameras is an incredibly important initiative for local filmmakers in Bristol - and I hope it keeps running for years to come!'
