Northern Lights Workshop 19-20 May


As well as the programmed talk and workshop about the We are Northern Lights project held at Tusk on Sunday as part of the 2012 Southside Film Festival there are other workshops happening that weekend.

There will be a We Are Northern Lights workshop held at Govanhill Baths on Saturday 19th & Sunday 20th May 10am – 4pm.

Northern Lights is a nationwide documentary project which wants you to contribute. It’s based around three questions:

  • What can you see? 
  •  What do you wish you had seen? 
  •  What would you like to see? 

Whatever you choose to film might answer just one of our suggested questions or all three. Equally, you might decide to film something completely different.

In the workshops Diversity Films will help you answer some or all of these questions, in your way. There is a £1,000 workshop award to be won from Northern Lights as well as weekly awards of £100 and a public award of £2,500 for best submissions. Most answers to the questions will be filmed on flip cams or mobile phones in or close to the venue, but if you want to use the V1 or EX1 and go away to film something special or different during that weekend, please be in touch. You can work together or alone, but need to appreciate that our time and resources are limited.

Please mail@diversityfilms.org.uk – ideally with registration form attached – to let us know if you will want to come and/ or want to borrow a camera to film.  Other workshops are being held by Diversity Films  throughout May:
