I make films that gives volume to the voices we seldom hear from. My films speak of marginalisation and social injustice, not with the intention of being didactic but rather to bring cultural insight and social understanding.
Patricia Francis is a filmmaker. She produces, directs and edits her own films.
Patricia’s media career began in BBC radio after competitively winning a place whilst studying at university. After securing a range of broadcast journalist opportunities Patricia moved into television production, working in regional news and current affairs and then in national television where she worked across BBC1 and BBC2 programmes.
In 2012 Patricia set up Syncopate Media an independent production company. She was commissioned to make films for BBC Inside, BBC Politics East Midlands and CBBC. Patricia was awarded funding for her first two films. ‘Many Rivers to Cross’, which spoke of the experiences of those from the Windrush generation who travelled from the Caribbean and who settled in Britain and ‘Making Waves’, her second film, gives unique insight into the social and economic experiences of Black-Britons born to the Windrush generation and who had to navigate social injustices during1970s and ‘80s Britain.
