The industry professionals also gave tips about breaking into the film industry and their own journey into film while talking abou their new film, Leave to Remain.
Eighteen-year-old Sadat, who grew up in Pakistan but now lives in Manor Park, said: “Hearing Bruce and Mesieh talk today has definitely inspired me to continue with filmmaking, and has furthered my belief that these things can happen.
