We are starting a new group at Open School East, a continuation of the much enjoyed and brilliant Open Cinema, an 8 month digital filmmaking project at OSE led by Neil Cummings. When the Open Cinema project came to an end last November, those who took part expressed a wish to form a new group in with a view to continue making films collaboratively, with a focus on the community in the Hackney area.
At this first meeting we will discuss ways of developing our ideas as a filmmaking group: identify new projects, explore different funding options, share resources and ways of making and showing digital films that will continue to reflect our imaginative approach and experience of living in Hackney and the surrounding area. If you are interested in joining us, or just want to find out more about this new project, come to this first meeting. If you unable make this date, and wish to be involved in this film-making project, email and we’ll include you in the mailing list of our new collective adventure in community filmmaking!
