About the Festival

You do you,

and you Be You

 

BE YOU is a 1-day Summer Festival in Soho, designed to spark honest conversation about the whole slate of film and TV culture, including the visible & hidden challenges of diversity, inclusion & belonging, as well as how to nurture and inspire the next-gen of talent.

 

We bring a mix of industry heavyweights and fresh newcomers from across the country together to passionately discuss the future of media culture.

 

From stamping out bullying, to building diverse crews and nurturing next-gen talent, our attendees leave full of ideas and inspiration.
