John Boyega joins forces with Converse to support rising Black talent

 

Actor & producer John Boyega has joined forces with Converse for The Create Next Film Project, an initiative which brings together young creatives and industry giants with aims to spotlight and empower the next generation of Black filmmakers.

The Peckham born actor has been inspired by his own challenges whilst building a career in an industry which he feels lacks representation and wishes to provide opportunities to other young Black creatives from a similar economic background as himself.

‘I want to develop projects here (London)and that’s what I’ve been doing, rather than just speaking about it, I’m trying to be a part of that effective change’

He hopes the project will help bridge representational gaps in the industry, bring Black filmmaking talent to the forefront and provide long-lasting opportunities for Black filmmakers.
