Congratulations are in order as Sheila Nortley has been invited to join the BFI Network x BAFTA Crew 2020

The year-round programme provides a bespoke series of monthly masterclasses, roundtables and sessions with BAFTA-winners, nominees and wider industry as well as structured networking events and mentoring opportunities.

Katie Campbell, Head of New Talent at BAFTA, said: “We’re delighted to be working with the BFI once-again to bring these incredibly exciting filmmakers into the spotlight. We encourage the industry to get to know these talented filmmakers and I can’t wait to see the wonderful work they produce in the years to come.”

Upon receiving the news, Sheila said she felt “grateful and reflective” and continued “Quick message to all those striving for whatever it may be: love, peace, success. Know that there are good wholesome people who will love you even in your most difficult times.

“Forget those who thrive in oppressive, unwarranted aggression and chaos. Forget those who seek broken people to idolise them. Those low vibrations are not for you. Instead, continue to seek the salām which glorifies the Most Merciful (swt) and surround yourself with those with whom you can exchange sunshine and light 🧚🏾‍♂️

“Using this announcement to celebrate the sources of peace in my life. You know who you are ☺️✨ love you”
