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.

Over the weekend of 24th and 25th November 2018, filmmakers, speakers and artists from across Europe and the UK came to Sheffield to celebrate Transforming Cinema – Sheffield’s first film festival to focus on transgender and non-binary films and storytelling.

With overs 30 films, shorts, documentaries, workshops and Q&As, the weekend was a great success, with so many important conversations taking place and powerful stories being shared.

We were honoured to have Sarah O’Connell hosting the event for the whole weekend – a massive thanks to Sarah for joining us again and for being a fabulous host.

We’d like to thank our incredible speakers and guests for giving Transforming Cinema life with such a broad range of identities, experiences and input – Andro & Eve and King Sammy Silver, Jake Graf and Hannah Graf, Campbell X, Rebekah Fortune, Ynda Jas, Kristiene Clarke and Ash Palmisciano.

A big thanks to the venues that hosted us (and for the staff who helped us) – Sheffield Town Hall, Curzon Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University’s Void Cinema.

Special thanks to The National Lottery Community Fund (and all the National Lottery players) for funding Transforming Cinema.

Thanks to our volunteers for helping us out and our photographer and videographer for capturing the event.

We’d like to give our thanks and appreciation for our consultation group who provided much-valued input and helped shape this weekend and to our supporters who helped spread the word.

And lastly (but by no means least!) a massive thank you to all our attendees – this was for you, and we hope you enjoyed it, whether you came for one or two things, or stayed for the whole weekend! (Thanks for your scribbles on our boards and for your feedback!)

We were thrilled and so very proud to be able to bring Transforming Cinema to life here in Sheffield again.
