STREETLAND OUTDOOR CINEMA - Call for short Films and performers
The aim is to encourage people to feel connected and empowered to take positive local action. By showing both local and international films and aim to give the audience a sense of their place in the world, as well as giving clues and sparks of inspiration from elsewhere that will help to create, nurture and grow positive solutions within their own lives and communities.
The idea is to create a narrative for the audience and take them on a journey which begins with themselves, their neighbours and their community - and bring them to pastures new; to inspiring and achievable examples of how community can be developed.
The Outdoor Cinema will held in the space that used to house the Hampden Picture House, a cinema that originally seated 1,040 people. It was opened in December 1920 and closed again after nearly 50 years in 1969 - thereafter it was used as a bingo hall, a cycling club and a social club. It was a music venue until it was demolished in 2007. This event will give the local community the opportunity to reclaim it’s original communal space.
They are looking for for films (no more than 15 minutes long) that could fit into the programme, as well as people, preferably with a background in performance to be authentic usherette’s for the evening.
Please contact Fran Higson mailto:email@example.com%20with with ideas for films to screen or if you are interested in being a cinema usherette or compere.
