‘Music to film – film to music’ at BFI Southbank



DMIM screen2 500_0Drake Music – Connect & Collaborate London in partnership with BFI Southbank present:

‘Music to film – film to music’

We will be showing a number of films made by disabled artists/filmmakers with music made by disabled artists/musicians to celebrate their skills in both music creation and filmmaking. The artists/musicians and filmmakers will present and talk about their work and answer questions. There will also be an open discussion about the relevance and importance of disabled music and filmmaking and what opportunities are open to disabled artists/musicians and filmmakers. This is an excellent opportunity for disabled artists/musicians and filmmakers and members of organisations working with disabled people in music and filmmaking to share experiences and knowledge.
