Eight BAME-background talents from the games industry have been selected for the London Games Festival’s yearly 2020 Ensemble showcase.
Ensemble, supported by the British Council, highlights the significant contribution BAME creatives have made to the UK’s games culture at every level, focusing on eight games creatives and delving into their work.
Striking portrait photos and profiles have gone live accompanied by an in-depth feature from media partner Evening Standard – a short video documentary about the eight which you can find below
The eight were selected by curator Sharna Jackson plus a dedicated steering group of BAME representatives from across the UK video games and interactive sector.
Ensemble is just one aspect of the London Games Festival, which features a mix of activity for consumers and industry professionals. The programme can be found at www.games.london.
London Games Festival is backed by the Mayor of London with funding of £1.2m over three years and seeks to make London the games capital of the world. It is delivered by Games London, an initiative from Film London, the capital’s screen industries agency, and video games trade body Ukie (The Association for UK Interactive Entertainment).
