Free Film-Making Workshop

For girls and young women in Wandsworth

Chocolate Films are running a free film-making workshop for girls and young women in Wandsworth and Lambeth over the next week.

Chocolate Films facilitators will train and support participants in making a 1000 Londoners' short documentary film. This will include training in using professional filmmaking equipment to shoot a film, creating shot lists and interview questions, and editing using Final Cut Pro.

Participants will work as film crews, supported by female filmmakers from Chocolate Films, to produce a selection of short documentaries about different women in London who they find inspirational. The workshop participants will determine the outcomes of the film by choosing the style of their film, as well as the subject and questions asked in the documentary interview.

The documentary films created during the workshop will be added to the 1000 Londoners project with a special season focussed on female empowerment. 1000 Londoners is Chocolate Films’ flagship project and award-winning web series.

The project’s primary aim is to promote community cohesion and a greater understanding between diverse communities living in London. This platform will allow participants to have their documentaries seen by a wide and diverse audience.

Participants will also have the opportunity to gain AQA Unit Award accreditation during the workshop. This is a scheme that recognises new skills through modules, such as Introduction to Filmmaking, Introduction to Filmmaking and Editing.
