All Q&As will be in-person, except at the Ritzy which will be a recorded Q&A between director Sonita Gale and Nitin Sawhney .

Hostile is a feature-length documentary focusing on the UK’s complicated relationship with its migrant communities. Told through the stories of four participants from Black and Asian backgrounds, the film focuses on the impact of the evolving ‘hostile environment’ policies that target migrants. The film explores how the lives of international students, members of the Windrush generation, and ‘Highly-Skilled Migrants’ have been affected. What does it mean to be British? What does it feel like to be told you don’t belong? With Brexit, the Points Based Immigration System and the Borders and Nationality Bill taking effect, the film asks: once the ‘hostile environment’ has targeted all migrants, who will it extend to next? This film seeks to hear these voices and inspire viewers to take action to create long-term change.
