ONE MILE AWAY Dir: Penny Woolcock
In this award-winning documentary from filmmaker Penny Woolcock, we follow the attempts of two warring gangs - the Burger Bar Boys (B21) and the Johnson Crew (B6) - to bring peace to their neighbourhoods in inner city Birmingham. This film will demonstrate how film and the determination of ordinary people can help to transform even the most entrenched of social problems in modern Britain.

DRINK, DRUGS AND KFC Dir: Aml Ameen
23:50 - Watch On Demand
Drink, Drugs and KFC is the directorial debut of The Bill and Harry's Law star Aml Ameen, exploring the dynamics of the friendships between a group of young boys growing up in London. Comical, yet heart-warming at the same time, we see Nathan and friends Max, Derek and Skipper head to an under-18 rave - the cue for drama, jokes and fights all in the name of teenage bravado and hopes.

THE HEALER IN ME Dir: Winsome Duncan
00:30 - Watch On Demand
Lyrical Healer explores the vast underground music and poetry scene, tapping into a world of entertainment where new artists remain hungry as talent continues to go unrecognised. The Healer in Me follows Lyrical’s musical journey that has led to collaborations with composer Andrew Campling and Chicago jazz singer Natalie Oliveri and shares Lyrical's thoughts on what it takes to be in the music industry.
