Filmmaking Production and Post-production

Lecturer

Kam is a filmmaker and screenwriter with a background in experimental film and video.

She has worked with outreach community groups to mentor, develop and facilitate participatory media projects and has taught screenwriting to young film students from inner city primary schools and single mums in Frankfurt.

In the late 90s, she helped set up and ran Bristol Independent Film Festival. She co-founded the Bristol branch of The Hub; one of the UK’s first digital arts organisations, supported by the Arts Council and HPlabs, Aardman and Real World Studios. She has also been a judge for various film festival panels such as Brief Encounters and depict!

Kam is interested in stories which explore the experiences of being brown, female and British and in how the processes of documentary, artist film and community engagement can be used to shape stories. Her work draws upon the resistance of the oppressed and the complexities of colonial relationships. Her screenplays have been supported by South West Media Development Agency, Working Title 2, National Lottery and Carlton TV. She has been a participant of the BFI NETWORK ‘Widening the Lens' and BFI Writer’s Lab schemes. She recently completed a micro-short White Riot for Smoking Bear Productions and continues to mentor artists through the film and TV chairty, Rising.

Committed to inclusivity and representation in the industry, Kam is delighted to be working with boomsatsuma.
