International Women’s Day – A short film shining a light on black creatives

SceneTV | Saturday March 9th 2019

Happy International Women’s Day to you all. And Happy Women’s History Month!

To celebrate, my platform SceneTV teamed up Black Women Off Screen to shine a light on three black women making their mark in the creative industries. In a year where the theme is #BalanceforBetter, this short film aims to make sure black women in Britain also have their voices and stories heard as part of this global annual event. The short film features:

Dalia Dias, a Creative Director, Filmmaker and Photographer in the music and fashion industry. She has worked with well-known brands and international music acts such as Chris Brown, Stormzy, Wizkid, Davido, Cardi B and more. (IG: @DaliaDias)

Christina Okorocha, one of three founders of VAMP, a social marketing agency representing the underrepresented, with a particular focus on women of colour in beauty, lifestyle and entertainment. Past projects have included the UK premiere of Marvel’s Black Panther, Girls Trip and A Wrinkle in Time. (IG: @christinaok)

Genista Tate-Alexander, a Marketing Manager at Bloomsbury Publishing. Her notable campaign include Reni Eddo-Lodge’s bestselling Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race, Lost Connections by Johann Hari and Bone by Yrsa Daley-Ward. (IG: @geninldn)

The talented women give advice on how to win in 2019, unpack what International Women’s Day means to them, and reveal some of the biggest misconceptions they face working in their respective industries. Have a watch below!
