Meet the Creatures

We believe in Equality and Diversity to Educate and Nurture – so much so that we’ve even made these words, which make up our name, into little characters.

EDEN Film Productions - boom - equality

Equality – Boom poles are used for audio recording and it is important that audio levels are balanced and at the correct level. That is why our boom pole gets to symbolise how we tackle discrimination in society; by striving for balance and equality at all times.

EDEN Film Productions -lens - diversity

Diversity – Camera lenses come in all shapes and sizes and they have a variety of purposes. Our camera lens promotes and believes in the strength of diversity everywhere and she ensures that it forever remains one of our core aims.

EDEN Film Productions - clapper - educate

Educate – Clapperboards are used on film sets to educate directors, actors and editors about scenes, locations and shots. Our clapperboard helps us on our journey to educate others, be they students taking our classes or an audience watching our films; education is key to our success.

EDEN Film Productions - reel - nurture

Nurture – Film editing takes a lot of time, concentration and patience. Our editing reel ensures that we nurture our students, volunteers, employees and films so that we can continue to share powerful stories, raising vital awareness about Equality and Diversity around the world.

Presenting… Transforming Cinema 2018! #TC18

 

E.D.E.N Film Productions are proud to announce Transforming Cinema 2018

Transforming Cinema is a trans-focused film festival, championing the voices, experiences and talents of transgender, gender non-conforming, non-binary and genderqueer individuals and communities.

Thanks to funding from The Big Lottery Fund, 2018’s festival will take place across the weekend of Saturday 24th and Sunday 25th November at various venues in Sheffield.

Film screenings and workshops will take place at Sheffield Town Hall, Curzon Cinema and Sheffield Hallam University’s Void Cinema.

The first Transforming Cinema festival was coordinated by E.D.E.N in 2016. E.D.E.N Chair Tom Reaney explains the significance of events like Transforming Cinema:

“Events like these are massively important in combatting ongoing overwhelming transphobic attitudes.
Whether it’s negative media attention, so-called ‘debate’ on trans lives and existences, falsehoods, fears and scare-mongering being perpetrated through politics, in the media and in both LGBTQIA+ communities and non-LGBTQIA+ communities around the world – trans voices are being ignored whilst cis-gender fears are being elevated to dangerous prominence.

Transforming Cinema takes the art of film and aims to set this right, by elevating and amplifying trans voices.”

Film submissions are now being accepted for 2018’s festival – full details on how to submit a film can be found on the Transforming Cinema website at www.transformingcinema.co.uk

The E.D.E.N Board will be working with a trans consultation group to help facilitate the success of this year’s festival. Other events will be taking place in Sheffield to mark Trans Awareness Week and the International Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR).

The festival programme will take shape over the coming months. For updates and announcements, follow Transforming Cinema and E.D.E.N Film Productions on social media and sign up to the E.D.E.N newsletter.
