Climate Challenge project: Free film workshops for groups

Register now for free shmu/Film Access Scotland workshops beginning on Monday 6th September

shmu will help deliver free film-making workshops for groups and organisations as part of Film Access Scotland’s Climate Challenge: 1.5 Degrees Films project.

The project invites people to make 90-second films to share their thoughts and ideas about climate change and how it is affecting us as individuals, our surroundings, families and communities, and is set against the background of the UN Climate Change Conference (COP-26) taking place in Glasgow from 31st October to 12th November 2021. 

The Challenge is led by Film Access Scotland and supported by the National Lottery through Screen Scotland  and by Keep Scotland Beautiful.

A representative from groups/organisations such as Community Groups, Youth Groups, Environmental Groups, Activist Groups and Arts Groups can register for free online workshops where they will receive filmmaking and climate literacy training. Once they have completed the training, they will be able to help their Group/Organisation make a 90-second live action or animated film for the Climate Challenge.

Film Access Scotland can also provide bursaries to cover costs, such as childcare and technical assistance, for those who have accessibility requirements and/or would otherwise be financially prohibited from attending the workshops. They can also offer bursaries for those seeking career and professional development as part of their current work or voluntary role but would not be paid for training by their employer. There are a limited number of bursaries available and will be subject to an application process.

The shmu-delivered workshops for the North East of Scotland will take place on Monday evenings (7-9pm) from the 6th of September.

Register for the workshops here.
