‘Suman worked with Arrow Films in early 2017 supporting the theatrical release of Clio Barnard's Dark River; she was specifically tasked with reaching and engaging a local audience in and around Leeds & Bradford. Suman showed both initiative and enthusiasm for the project and her local knowledge was invaluable in helping to promote the film as well as find unique ways to promote the film including negotiating advertising space on Bradford & Leeds outdoor screens. She was a fantastic advocate for the film and its release’

'Suman is dedicated to bringing insight and understanding into some of the issues facing diverse communities today, which I feel is invaluable'

'I first came across Suman’s film, ‘Plates’ as part of a project to promote Bradford film-makers on the Bradford Big Screen. From the start, I was struck by Suman professionalism and skill, particularly in the edit of this short film with a true purpose.

 

Suman has been a regular supporter of Bradford as a UNESCO City of Film and her input and ideas have been incredibly valuable. She is as ambitious as she is creative but also very modest about her talent. I look forward to seeing her career in film flourish in the coming years'

David Wilson

Director of Bradford UNESCO City of Film

‘Suman’s commitment to storytelling is clearly evident.’

'Suman played a key role in the successful #4sparks bid to attract the Channel 4 National HQ to Leeds City Region. As a filmmaker based in Bradford, Suman was extremely well placed to convey the region’s strengths in media and culture to decision makers and the press. Suman’s positivity and willingness to contribute invaluable insights, expertise and time to support the campaign over a year-long period was invaluable'

'Suman was a stand-out participant on one of our highly regarded and competitive “Bootcamp” training schemes. I’ve every confidence that Suman will go on to become a stalwart of the Yorkshire film and television production landscape soon, and for many years into the future. She is exactly the sort of dynamic, diverse, intelligent and creative voices we need as we face fresh modern challenges both nationally and internationally'

Suman supported our World of Work Week I organised at Peel Park Primary School.  She is professional and very easy to work with, both in the lead up to the event and on the day. The workshops she delivered to the students were interesting and engaging and the students were inspired by what she had to tell them. I look forward to working with Suman again.
