The Black British Filmmaker’s Guide to Success is a new and valuable book by Nadia Denton, which she describes as a “personal development guide that is packed with very practical guidance to assist filmmakers in securing funding, marketing and distribution opportunities for their films.

Denton, who founded and coordinated the Black Filmmakers Film Club in the U.K., believes though that her new book is not just limited to Black Brits, but also “the wider international community of black filmmakers and filmmakers of other backgrounds making black content, or other cultural specific work.”And now the book is available for free as a download.
