Shanie Interviews Bafta Award winning Director Amma Asante MBE

Last night Shanie hit the stage at Westfield Stratford Vue Cinema to host the May edition of ‘Your Cinema’ .

Your cinema was created as a new way for future generations to watch films that directly reflect both their lives and also their culture.

By partnering with some of the UK’s largest film organisations  ‘Your Cinema’ has also been designed to grow and develop the careers of the best up and coming filmmakers and actors through national screenings as well as their online networks.

For those who haven’t attended a Your Cinema screening before every couple of months they showcase 4 short independent films or one feature film up on the big screen, Shanie then hosts an intimate interview followed by an industry Q & A with a special guest.

In the past she has interviewed some of the best UK actors some of whom have taken Hollywood by storm including Daniel Kaluuya, Ashley Walters, Noel Clarke to name a few.

Yesterday she sat down in front of a full house of Industry professionals and upcoming talented individuals  in the field of screen writing, acting & directing to conduct a live interview with Screenwriter and Director Amma Asante MBE. Its was an incredibly insightful conversation about Amma’s journey from actor to screenwriter to BAFTA Award winning director. There was also a very special screening of her new film ‘When Hands Touch’ which received an incredible response for the audience.

Keep an eye on for the full interview.
