Strand London, WC2R 1LA London, United Kingdom
Cotch International proudly present their first project in collaboration Somerset House, where they are currently part of the new Associate Artists scheme, focusing on the new wave of DIY filmmakers in the UK that have come up around the rise of online underground music channels like GRM Daily, Link Up TV, SB.TV, Mixtape Madness, preceded by the now defunct Channel AKA / U.

Despite often being very young and operating with limited resources, some of the most relevant and powerful video work in the country has been happening within these scenes over the last few years — the numbers don't lie — but there has still be a lack of genuine recognition of these achievements in the arts establishment of the UK, and this event plans to redress the balance.

Taking the form of a panel talk and afterparty, the conversation will focus on the individual rise of each creative, the obstacles they faced while carving out their career, and where they see the culture going next. There will also be a focus on the current spate of censorship that has seen many videos pulled from Youtube, and a look at the acceptance of Black British culture within the mainstream.

Featuring directors who’ve worked with the cream of new UK music, from Stormzy, J Hus, Stefflon Don, Dave, Krept & Konan, Section Boyz, WSTRN…. These industrious young directors have created iconic videos and racked up tens of millions of views from a global audience.
