"Creativity knows no boundaries and has no rules. The new Spielberg or John Ford could well come from the Open Cinema!"

– Hugh Hudson (Director: Chariots of Fire, Alta Mira)




Open Cinema teaches participants the skills required to make creative short films based on their own ideas and experiences. Resulting films are submitted to and often programmed at film festivals, enabling participants to publicly present and receive acknowledgement for their work. Open Cinema currently offers four Filmmaking Programmes, which can be participatory or fully produced by our in-house filmmakers:

CREATIVE FILM PROGRAMME

Make your first film, and acquire a range of life and media skills along the way.

ADVOCACY FILM PROGRAMME

Make a film advancing the policy objectives of your organisation, for leaders, supporters, peers and the public.
