We are pleased to be offering online workshops in September for LGBTQIA+ people in Scotland to make their own short films at home.
The workshops are suitable for beginners or those with some filmmaking experience. You will be supported to create your own 1 minute short film. Finished films will be screened as part of SQIFF 2020 in October. We will also offer a captioning workshop to support people to create their own captions for Deaf and hard of hearing access for their film.
There are two dates for the filmmaking workshops. You must be available for ONE of these dates, either 2nd or 3rd September, 6-8pm in the evening.
If you are interested in taking part, please email info[at]sqiff.org and we will give you further information. Please note places are limited.
To take part, you will need a device to record video on such as a smart phone, tablet, or camera, editing software (e.g. iMovie or Windows Movie Maker), and internet access. To take part in the captioning workshop, you will also need a laptop. We can support with costs for accessing equipment and internet where needed. Please let us know if you will need this when getting in touch.
If you have any access requirements, please let us know and we will arrange support for you at the workshops.
The filmmaking workshops will be led by Scotland-based artist, filmmaker, and film tutor Yasmin Al-Hadithi. Hadithi is co-founder of DOCMA_docs – a global platform for the playful exploration of different doc-filmmaking styles – and DocKlub, “Scotland’s Support Group for Documentary Filmmakers”. Yasmin also works as a creative producer – most recently developing an international ‘film exchange’ for young people in Scotland and the Arctic called, Breaking The Ice.
These workshops are supported by the National Lottery/Scottish Government Supporting Communities COVID-19 Fund.
