In 2014 I had recently founded Deptford Cinema, and we were invited by Film London to programme a series of films for under-25s as part of their city-wide programme. I suggested we curate a series of films exploring what it meant to be a young person from different parts of the world, and invited fellow volunteers to form a collaborative programming group to select the films together. The majority of this group had no previous programming experience, whilst one or two were seasoned film programmers. The environment was collaborative and supportive, with decisions being made together by a group of different ages, nationalities and socio-economic backgrounds. We programmed ten feature films, three of which were UK premieres, and held a series of sold-out screenings.
