Blue Stockings: all-female workshop
August 16, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - August 31, 2017 @ 6:30 pm UTC+0
Chocolate Films Workshops presents Blue Stockings, an empowering all female filmmaking project. Taking its title from the inspiring 18th Century Blue Stockings Society, a group who campaigned for equal recognition of women’s creative work, Chocolate Films will train girls and women in documentary filmmaking.
Participants will work as film crews, supported by female filmmakers from Chocolate Films, to produce a selection of short documentaries about women in London that inspire them. The films will be added to the award-winning online documentary series 1000 Londoners and will feature in a special season on female empowerment.
Participants will have the opportunity to gain AQA Unit Award accreditation. This is a scheme that recognises new skills through modules, such as Introduction to Filmmaking and Introduction to Filmmaking and Editing. The workshops can build on your confidence for further education and career paths.
At the end of the project, expect a celebratory film screening and inspirational panel discussion with Bafta Award winning documentary filmmaker Yvette Vanson, Chocolate Films director Rachel Wang and a special guest.
