Make A Scene are working with Birds Eye View on an amazing new project that we think you're going to love - RECLAIM THE FRAME - THE INFLUENCER PROJECT.
Birds Eye View celebrate their 15th year of flight this year, and strongly believe that together (women, men, gender neutrals) we can build a bigger network that can make a difference to the cultural and commercial value of films by women.
Supported by a BFI Audience Fund Award, the RECLAIM THE FRAME - THE INFLUENCER PROJECT will:
- Spotlight 4 new specialised films directed and/or written by women
- in 5 UK cities
- over 6 months from April 2018
London / Newcastle / Manchester / Birmingham / Plymouth
In each city, we are helping to establish a network of Influencers who will advocate and champion the films over the course of the programme.
If you love film and want an equal view of the world, this is an amazing opportunity to:
· See some great films
· Hear brilliant filmmakers, actors and experts speak
· Be part of the film’s campaign
· Join a movement
· Expand your personal network by connecting to other influencers in your location
· Support your local independent cinema and supporting independent film in your community
· Get free tickets, discount codes and film-goodies
Birds Eye View are now in the final stages of confirming an exciting programme of films and events. All films will be getting a proper theatrical release, will be intersectional, international fine examples of the female gaze curated by Birds Eye View.
Birds Eye View are hosting launch events throughout April in London / Manchester / Plymouth / Birmingham / Newcastle - and obviously Manchester is going to be the best one!
These events will be an opportunity to shape the programme and meet cool film fans like you. You do not have to identify as female to be part of this amazing group of screen influencers you just have to believe in the message of the network.
The programme is all about the network, so hearing your ideas will help to shape the movement.
Our Manchester event is 18.00 on Tuesday 24th April at HOME workshops space (top floor)
