We grow films.
Stewart Kyasimire is a BAFTA-nominated director whose films include BBC Scotland’s Black and Scottish, a seminal, identity-defining film gathering together prominent black Scots from all generations. Bash the Entertainer – Behind the Smile is Stewart’s next documentary for BBC Scotland tackling social media, racism and mental health.
In 2019 Stewart set up the first BAME production company in Scotland, after noticing the lack of diversity and inclusion within the film and TV industry on and off-screen. His company ‘Create Anything’ has set out to tell minority ethnic stories. Create Anything set up a BAME Scotland network agency placing the right talent in front of Execs and commissioners.
