Next Open Screen at Film Oxford, 54 Catherine St, OX4 3AH 7:30-9:30pm, Thursday 8th September
Open Screen is back – after a summer break – so come along to show the films you’ve been working on (finished or unfinished), show your latest film kit, and meet other local filmmakers.
Come along to watch and discuss locally made films, network with other filmmakers – ranging from beginners to professionals – and hear about upcoming Film Oxford courses.
This month we have a special launch of Asylum Welcome’s film (27 minutes) along with the film’s award winning director Dai Richards and editor/cameraman Danny MacGregor-Gill to talk about the making of the film and answer your questions.
The film was made to help raise awareness of the realities facing asylum seekers and refugees in and around Oxford, and of the work Asylum Welcome does to support them as they try to get on here, so please invite your friends and colleagues who are interested in refugee issues to come along.
In the film, refugees living in and around Oxford tell their stories – of the horrors they fled, the challenges they faced on arrival in Britain, and the support they have received from Asylum Welcome. Staff and volunteers at the charity talk of the work they do to keep those newly arrived here from falling into destitution, and to help those granted refugee status to adapt and get on.
If you have videos you’d like to show, get in touch by emailing email@example.com
Films need to be under ten minutes (or show a clip from a longer film), and the filmmaker needs to come along – to tell us about the making of their film, and to ask and answer questions.
The evening is FREE – you can just turn up to watch. Please bring a snack or drink to share.
