Our Social Projects
E.D.E.N. Film Productions run a variety of filmmaking projects
working with the LGBTQ+ community.
The workshops are taught by industry experts, provide invaluable skills and a great opportunity to meet like minded people. Attendees of our courses put their skills into practice, producing their own films and through them highlighting the topics they have chosen. This means participants are able to tell their own stories about LGBTQ+ lives; stories which throughout history all too often have been silenced, and which are often lacking from the public eye still today. These films, broadcast to the local community and subsequently the world, help raise awareness about issues concerning the LGBTQ+ community. From there on the skills obtained mean attendees are able to take on the world of filmmaking in their own right. Films produced on our filmmaking projects have been screened at film festivals around the world including BFI Flare, SQIFF and Translations: Seattle Transgender Film Festival.
