Shortlisted

Yarit Dor - Moving Body Arts

Since Intimacy Coordination entered the UK industry around 2017/2018 post #MeToomovement, the individuals holding such role have been predominantly White Cis-Women. Yarit Dor applied for the Film & TV Charity Community Fund to create a mentoring scheme solely for those from underrepresented groups, ScreenSkills got on board and supported the scheme with Moving Body Arts Ltd. And so from November 2020 till June 2021 five practitioners have not only added skills to their job portfolio, but also received fully-funded places that allowed financial barriers to be removed. This has been a vital first step to diversifying the role in the UK.
