The Sheffield culture guide written by in-the-know locals

Since 2013 the Sheffield-based social enterprise E.D.E.N. Film Productions have been running filmmaking workshops and events for the LGBTQ+ community, as well as organising the Transforming Cinema film festival. They're now launching E.D.E.N. Digital, an online filmmaking project for the LGBTQ+ community.

The theme of E.D.E.N. Digital is: how to make films about you and your work.

The aim of the free course is to empower you with all the tools you will need to make a film about your story, business or project using just your phone, or whatever camera you have available.

The course will include:

  • Ten 2-hour interactive online filmmaking workshops, covering storytelling techniques, sound recording, and editing.
  • Online communal editing sessions, group discussions and feedback sessions.
  • 1-2-1 Zoom call for each participant to talk to the tutors about their film.
  • Create a short film that will be premiered via an online community screening.

There will also be five online masterclasses about filmmaking with established filmmakers – details to come soon.

The online filmmaking project will be delivered by award-winning filmmaker Brett Chapman and E.D.E.N. Film Productions’ founder Claire Watkinson. All project activities are available for no cost and hosted via Zoom.

E.D.E.N. Digital launches Tuesday 1st September 2020, 7-9pm on Zoom. The course is for ages 18+ and places are limited.
