Black Country Cinema meet David Rose
When venturing into the world of short filmmaking it can be difficult to know where to start. Whether you are a recent media graduate or completely new to the idea of making your own films, the sheer volume of other products out there on the festival circuit and on the internet (most notably Youtube) mean you can only add your fish to an already ram packed pond.
Black Country Cinema was founded in early 2009 by a growing community of artists/poets who describe their work as ‘personal, instinctual & organic video poetry of everyday life’. Their influences include the Japanese silent filmmaker/director Shimizu Hiroshi and Iranian director, screenwriter & producer Abbas Kiarostami. There will be an introduction and Q and A by the artists/poets and an opportunity to find out more about the group and how to get involved.
