Cassie Smyth

Cassie Smyth is the Find Your Voice programme manager in Birmingham.  She's had a varied career path that started in music journalism writing for publications such as NME and Fused Magazine leading her to become a DJ and promoter in many prominent venues in the city.  She has since worked as coordinator of BBC Make It Digital Birmingham, upskilling young adults to move into digital roles. 

Now at UpRising, Cassie has brought a passion for filmmaking and local knowledge to the Find Your Voice programme.  Her enthusiasm for young creative talent in the city has led her to create the Birmingham Young Filmmakers Network in association with local independent, The Mockingbird Cinema with the aim of making filmmaking more accessible and inclusive.

 

In her spare time, Cassie runs interactive cinema events and is completing her degree through Open University.
