FURD film making project gets underway

18 Apr 2018 / News

FURD's new film-making project is underway, with a series of workshops being held at the U-Mix Centre, Sheffield, for budding young film-makers.

We're working with film-maker Eelyn Lee and a group of 16-24-year-old volunteers to make a documentary film exploring Britishness, British values and what unites people.

So far the workshops have included discussions about racism and identity, practical experience with cameras and sound recording equipment, research skills and carrying out some practice interviews.

Next up is to generate some ideas about what the film will be like.

The group is aiming to complete both a 10-20 minute documentary and a 90-second trailer looking at stereotypes, misconceptions and how to challenge them.

It's not too late for people to get involved - if you or any 16-24 year olds you know would like to gain some free film-making training and experience whilst supporting this great cause, please get in touch - our contact details are at the top of this page.

More information is available at the link below.

All being well the films will be completed in time for a Sheffield launch in October 2018. Watch this space!
