An 8-day youth Filmbuilding workshop hosted by MATV/UMA in collaboration with Tom Flint of Zoom in Zoom Out. 13 students from 3 countries (China, Chile and the US) worked in small groups and created 3 films about their experience with COVID-19. The theme is “what’s the opposite of distance”.
In July 2020, the team delivered a documentary filmmaking program to Malden High students and participants of the Malden Youth Summer Employment Program (MYSEP). In this workshop, the students worked with each other online to exchange information and build films that tell the story of the pandemic through their own eyes and the eyes of front-line workers. Divided into two groups, the students created a total of three films: one for each group and one combined group effort.
A city-wide series of discovery-based film building workshops that would take place over a period of several months to a year. Community members of all ages in Malden will engage in the creation of a series of group-based short film projects along a theme that relates to Malden and its identity and vision. Once completed, the films will be publicly exhibited and screened in creatively appropriated sites (both outdoors and indoors) and screened along with various arts and culture-related events that further celebrate Malden’s rich diversity.
Eight adults participated in this first adult filmbuilding workshop. The workshop was held October 23-25, 2020. Screening will take place Thursday, October 29, 2020 at 7pm. To register, go to https://us02web.zoom.us/meeting/register/tZAlce2hqjgrH9aGUKczty5ZjI_ftglsz_Qp
