Becoming Independent Filmmakers

We support our filmmakers to develop professionally and make films independently.

March of the Cuckoos Digital Revolution FilmBank

We worked with Tyneside Cinema to create an accessible application process for their Random Acts programme. This involved running ideas and pitching workshops with filmmakers with learning disabilities and autism. The project was supported by the Arts Council and Channel 4 Television.

Through this process, Phil Coghill was selected to make his film:  “March of the Cuckoos”. He directed a professional crew and the film was chosen as a Channel 4 Random Acts’ “Film of the Day”.
