REWARD VIDEO #5… & PARTY! Alice Lowe & Manjinder Virk on Queendom & Keeping Going

You did it! We've reached an unbelievable £10,000 and we're setting our sights on our stretch goal of £20K so we can do even more for our amazing community. To say THANK YOU (and do drop us a line with your Twitter handle if you haven't had a thank you GIF!), here we have not one but TWO incredible actor-writer-director-mamas, in conversation about how they've forged their unique careers: Alice Lowe and Manjinder Virk, our Raising Films Ambassadors. Alice will also be hosting our crowdfunder-closing PARTY at BAFTA 195 Piccadilly, on Friday 9th March. Tickets are now on sale, and excitement is rising! We'd love to share what promises to be a special evening with you. But first: take it away, RF Ambassadors…
