Local people creating projects that make Southwark fantastic place to live, work and relax.
‘3 Minutes’ is a non-profit community driven film initiative, set up to connect local creatives with people living and working in the same community. Created by a small collective of artists, filmmakers and writers, ‘3 Minutes’ is a series of three minute vignettes, each giving an insight into the daily practice and process of creative individuals or groups in the local community. The vignettes are designed to be shown in cinemas before the main feature, inspired in part by the Pathé newsreels in the earlier days of cinema. For an example of the style and format of the shorts, please take a look at our pilot film: http://jacktaylorgotch.co.uk/Tom-Maryniak
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
As a collective, we believe in nourishing independent artistic practice, and that maintaining a connection between culture and the local community is mutually beneficial for both parties. Through ‘3 Minutes’, the artists gain a platform from which to, hopefully, generate more interest in their practice. In turn, the community, the individual person watching the film, gains an insight into unseen exciting cultural activities, happening right on their doorstep. The idea is that this helps to build a sense of community, of shared space, and may even encourage more people to engage with such practices, generating trade and commerce in the local community.
