“The network speaks”, hosted in partnership with the Creative Diversity Network, visited Bristol in late January.
The series of events, which are taking place at RTS centres across the UK, are an attempt to find regional solutions to the lack of diversity in the television industry.
Representatives from a range of independent production companies and post-production facilities discussed diversity in the West of England production community.
The discussion was led by the facilitator, performance poet and film-maker Alison Smith, the access and engagement coordinator of the Scottish Queer International Film Festival. She focused on how best to hire and retain diverse talent.
Smith stressed the importance of alternative interview techniques, and the need for collaboration and communication within the community.
CDN project manager Adam Hawley said: “It was an impressive show of intent from the production community in Bristol – expressing a real desire to improve industry practice and do it by working together.”
