The Film Liberation Project - A FREE crash course in film-making, The Tin Music and Arts


The Film Liberation Project presents a completely FREE and collaborative crash course in film and film-making.

The Film Liberation Project aims to break down the barriers that surround film-making to give anyone the chance to be a filmmaker. It’s about working with what you’ve got and giving yourself permission to create and try new things.

Starting in July and finishing in November (with August off), you will focus on particular genres and ideas through a selection of short and feature films with additional video essays, articles, interviews, fan and film theory. Via Zoom there will be post screening discussions as well as informative online seminars that will be led by the filmmakers and cover and combine the practical, the theoretical, film history and DIY ethics. 

There will be opportunities to have one to one’s with the filmmakers leading the project to discuss your work, as well as problem solving with your fellow participants. No film studies or filmmaking experience necessary.

The commitment expected over our 4 month programme will be: 
• 3 hours of online seminars a month.
• 2.5 – 4.5 hours watching 1 – 2 feature films a month and 0-5 short films 
• 1 week – 2 weeks period of filmmaking a month in your own time.
• Optional one to one and group discussions.
• Optional class reunion/screening opportunity

Materials are free but you will need some core items to help you engage with us.  – 
• Access to internet using Zoom for online seminars and for watching films 
• Camera – can be camcorder or camera phone 
• Laptop/Tablet or phone to access free editing software
• Bank account – to receive a refund for payment of film hire 

Those who have no experience in filmmaking will be prioritised over those who have.
