On Friday the 18th of February 2022, E.D.E.N. Film Productions will be showcasing the collection of films that were made as part of the LGBTQ+ filmmaking project.
These films can be viewed on E.D.E.N.’s Vimeo channel via this link – www.vimeo.com/showcase/edendigital202122 – this link will be live from 10am on Friday the 18th of February.
E.D.E.N. Digital launched in September 2021, engaging 10 members of the LGBTQ+ community in 15, 2-hour interactive online filmmaking workshops, covering storytelling techniques, camera and 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’ Founder Claire Watkinson.
E.D.E.N. Digital 2021/22 was funded by The National Lottery Community Fund.
The artwork for the film screening was created by stc019, a trans comic artist and illustrator, devoted to telling trans love stories and colourful mini utopias.
