Workshop: Identity & Documentary with Scottish Documentary Institute

October 10, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 2:00 pm

A group of people sitting in a brightly lit cinema chatting and looking towards the stage. In the foreground there is a person with long blond hair and a green jumper and a person with shorter black hair and a white vest. The atmosphere is warm and buzzing.

Join us to explore the notion of identity through the medium of short documentary, with guest filmmakers working in animation, broadcast, and creative documentary.

Organised in partnership with Scottish Documentary Institute, this workshop is aimed at emerging filmmakers and artists who are developing projects around identity and are keen to get inspired in an informal, collaborative, and safe environment. Participants will be invited to submit their own short documentary project for feedback if they would like to.

We are delighted that documentary filmmakers Inma de Reyes and Steven Fraser will discuss their work during this session.
