This is a extract from a recent review for Mass E Bhat

 

'The stories of the individuals interviewed for Mass E Bhat are worthy of documenting on their own merits, but the way they were presented in the film leaves the viewer with a stunning experience. The cinematography is gorgeous from the opening shots, and the scenes are pieced together well. The score is also captivating. While presenting a truly difficult and heart-rending reality, the film leaves you with a sense of hope rather than only despair' Read the full review here. There is also a review by Times Colonist here

Tiny Directors

Launch of Films For Food 

On 15th September 2014 we launched Films For Food at Richmix cinema, screening 'Mass E Bhat' in exchange for food donations for Tower Hamlets food bank. The event was a success and we will be continuing to screen our films, as well

as films by other film-makers at events throughout the autumn and beyond, as part of this new

initiative. To find out more about Films For Food,

visit the website here.

In November 2014 we had the pleasure of teaming with our regular partner Openvizor and we visited Bangladesh to work with Paraa. As a team we worked together on the Cycle Of Care program. This project focused on the role of street children in Dhaka. Our contribution to this project involved training a group children from Leedo Street Child Shelter and getting them to make short films that they would storyboard, write, direct, shoot, narrate and the young director's got fellow street children to act in each of the films. The whole process took 4 days and then the films were presented at the   prestigious EMK Centre in Dhaka where the young people took part in a Q&A session. Since then the films have been screened in both the UK and Bangladesh for cultural, campaigning and educational purposes. 

We are in the process of creating a new page on our training section which shall go more in-depth on this project. The films will be screened at Cutting East Film Festival and Films For Food events.

Studio 174 Downtown Kingston

Since last year we have been working with the lovely team at Studio 174. Working with Openvizor and Anton Kats of 'Radio Sonar'.

We were part of the Art Up Downtown project where young people from Downton and Uptown worked together on a series of Artistic projects which filmmaking was part of. We went again in February 2015 and worked with the downtown students and supported them in making one documentary and three short films. More details on studio and the work we are doing there shall be posting in the Training section
