VIEWFINDER: The Story So Far
Click here to return to the main Viewfinder page
Supported by Spirit of 2012, and Sir James Knott Trust Viewfinder 2015-18 supported filmmakers who have learning disabilities, autism and additional needs to work on their own and each other’s film projects, and then apply this experience to volunteer-filmmaking roles working alongside a creative partner. Our creative partners included local charities, a hotel and restaurant run by people with autism, BBC Tours Newcastle and a local marketing agency.
These pages tell the story of the first three years of our Viewfinder programme (2015-2018)

In the Film Factories, Viewfinder members applied the skills they developed in the surgeries to a film made in partnership with an external organisation. Viewfinder members had to follow a brief and create a polished final result. Check out the films that we made below!
