On Friday the 18th June 2021 at 7pm, E.D.E.N. Film Productions will be showcasing the short films that were produced by members of the LGBTQ+ community on their online filmmaking project, E.D.E.N. Digital.
E.D.E.N. will premiere the films made on the project alongside behind the scenes footage and interviews with participants. The event will start at 7pm via E.D.E.N.’s YouTube channel. The film will be screened using YouTube’s premiere functions.
E.D.E.N. Digital launched in February, engaging 18 members of the LGBTQ+ community in 15, 2-hour interactive online filmmaking workshops, covering storytelling techniques, sound recording and editing. Alongside group discussions, feedback sessions and a 1-2-1 Zoom call available for each participant on the project.
The aim of the course was to empower the participants with all the tools they needed to make a film using just their phone, or whatever camera they had available. The project was delivered by award-winning filmmaker Brett Chapman and E.D.E.N. Film Productions’ CEO and Founder Claire Watkinson.
E.D.E.N. Digital was funded by Comic Relief’s LGBTQ+ COVID-19 Recovery Fund, in partnership with METRO Charity, Yorkshire MESMAC and Birmingham LGBT.
